Doc here,

If you run out of Simple checks..

Pull the inspection Cover from the clutch, and if you can get any sight on them, inspect the pressure plate springs for a cracked spring.

Had a similar problem on a 56 Vette with a Close Ratio 3 Speed and highway gears years ago..used to eat up springs and disc's like crazy..did the same thing just before the disc let go.
