Question about 1983 Chevrolet K2500
The clutch is new and the fluid is fine. It feels like it is going into gear but as soon as I start letting off the clutch it jumps between in gear and nuetral causing a slight grind. All the other gears hold fine.
In the transmission itself there are clutches between the gears. (small rings) these are worn and needs to be replaced.
instead of buying a new transmission, It would be cheaper (i think) to purchase a transmission kit for your make and model transmission and replaces the parts. Its basically rebuilding the transmission so it will return to prime condition.. It does require a professional though , you should consult with your mechanic the cost of a new one and rebuilding this one.

check the clutch fluid, sounds like the clutch is going or there is a leak in the hydraulic system for the clutch release

What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.
Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.
