Re: centerforce DF slipping
If your flywheel dust cover is missing (it screws into the bottom third of the transmission bellhousing with two bolts), you might try the local junkyard or Rob's Samurai parts in Iowa. Link to his site is at <a target="_blank" href=http://www.Izook.com>http://www.Izook.com</a>.
Having that cover will definitely help keep out the mud...
Also, as someone else suggested, check the clutch cable for proper setup. it adjusts at the throwout arm AND the cable mounting bracket on the side of the engine.
There's a good description of the process in the Haynes manual (at most libraries!) and (even better) the FSM if you can lay your hands on one.
