Doesn't sound like a clutch.  Get out your lucky charm
bracelets and beads, and hope it is just a failed
bushing or joint in the shifter linkage.  Hope against
hope it is not something inside the transmission.
I lost reverse and 5th (5spd with reverse up and to
right above 5th) with similar symptoms and it turned
out to only be the linkage.  Probably should have gone
straight out and bought a lottery ticket.
