By saying manual linkage do you mean there is no hydraulics any where. If there is no hyd. master you need to look at your free play.You only need about an inch of free play at the pedal.Things naturally swell with heat and if you have gotten any oil on the clutch disc it will swell up and tighten up when hot.Adjust the clutch so the throw out bearing isn't riding on the pressure plate when your foot is off the pedal. Another problem could be the pressure plate is warping with heat and is junk.Good Luck.

pull the cover on the trans and check the synchro's, I bet the brasses are worn out
