It's a tk5 manual 5 speed.. I don't know I just bought it from some old man about a month ago and I have been going threw it trying to make it run as aficent as possible and this seems to be the only problem I can't figure to diagnose. If you have any other suggestions I am open for all kinds of stuff

May be clutch slipping have you changed the fluid? manuals like clean fluid to not to familiar with the older five speeds though.

Yeah id change for some good fluid i think the older ones used gear lube but not 100% if that doesn't do it id check the clutch next could just be worn out ford has a habit of using self adjusting clutches (on the new ones not sure about the old 5 speeds) which it could be worn out but the pedal will feel normal.

the older 5 speeds used non adjusting clutches , and they used gear oil not atf fluid

you might have a cracked flywheel , your clutch is showing the early signs of failure

centerforce clutches are pretty cheap these days

Ok I think if it were my fly wheel I would feel it all the time. The stuffer is just from 2- 3 grand in second I threw new plugs in thinking they were just fowled up and not keeping up with the fuel but that didn't work and that's why I am on here so I don't wasted all of my time on trial an error...

not necessarily , a small crack in the flywheel will cause intermittent clutch slippage under acceleration

a large crack will cause a clutch explosion and loss of limbs or life at worst
