clutch problems

Well i got the two year project running again, sounds like a drag car with open headers, and runs like a top. But it dont do any good if you cant put the power to the wheels. I reinstalled the old clutch and flywheel, cause it was a fairly new centerforce, and now the jeep wont even hardly move. It will move on flat ground but when the front tires are pulled up to blocks it stops moving and wont even bog the motor, even in four low! ive adjusted the clutch as much as possible and nothing changes. does this thing need a flywheel shim??? whats causing the clutch to slip this bad?? its been so long since i tore it all down i forgot if it had a shim in it, i know me or my brother never used one and we have had it since 1991. I just want to drive it again!!! any ideas?? by the way its a 72 304 motor, built, 84 frame, 92 YJ tub, and its big and loud ha

First two things I would think of is a bad or warped pressure plate or contaminants on the friction surface causing it to slip.

Did you acidentally install the disk upside down on the flywheel? One side is supposed to go down instead of the other. I have heard of people having similar symptoms and that was the cause for them.

You said that you reinstalled the clutch that was on there...Did it drive before you took it apart?

Yes the cluth worked great when took out, and im 99.9 percent sure the plate is in right, although i already thought of this, i still will check it, maybe i was just in to big a hurry to get it running again. As far as the throwout bearing i dont know, i will check this also when i get time, im takin the night off. Its burning me out, turning wrenchs for a living and coming home and doing it is starting to get old. ha Thanks guys i will let you know whats goin on when i figure it out.
