There is a riveted damper plate in the clutch pack. If a few of those rivets let go, and they can, it...shall we say..."changes the dynamics" of the clutch.

Some say it can be done with the motor in place, but it seems like it would be just as easy to move the motor left enough to get at the clutch cover.

I would do a little further checking before yanking engine. Any chance the master cylinder is not releasing pressure from a blocked return port. When I first got my SEI the clutch did some really funky things but after flushing clutch fluid and frequent driving problem went away. Sometimes just flushing isn't enough.
