Clutch & Distributor Issues

I was wondering.....Would the distributor timing cause the clutch to slip? It's
possible the timing could still be incorrect, if I were to adjust it again would it
fix my clutch slipping problem?

My car was bogging for quite awhile and it took me forever to find what was
wrong with it. About less than a month of driving it the way it was I found
out it was my distributor timing and adjusted it. While I had the issue I
would sometimes have to rev to 3000 rpms in order for the clutch to engage.

Now that it is somewhat fixed I have been able to change gears at lower
rpms but I can still feel the clutch struggling to grab the plate. Does that
mean my clutch is fried or could I somehow fix it by adjusting the distributor

Ignition timing has nothing to do with clutch slippage.

Get your car to about 60km/h, stick it in 5th and floor it. If the revs go right up but the car doesn't go any faster, time for a new clutch.

Not related components. You probably glazed your clutch reving it out all the time when it was running bad. If you would like someone to look at it give us a call I'd be glad to check it out and give you an estimate for the repairs. Taking a look is free.
