65 mustang violently shakes on take off

That usually has nothing to do with the things you replaced haha maybe the wheel clutch but if you replaced it, it would ne fine. With the older model of these cars i would suggest its the block, especially if you have over heated it a lot. Possibly even the transmission. If your transmission is slipping it can cause the engine to shake pretty badly

Car will not go into gear.

Clutch is not disenging and is dragging, thats why it jumps forward, It could be at worst cas a warped fly wheel or the clutch plate de-lamanating or a colapsed re-lease bearing, or the re-lease arm is bent, the fix pull gearbox off car check re-lease bearing and arm and replace bearing, replace clutch presure plate and friction plate and if your funds allow have the fly wheel checked for true, reface the surface if needed, check here for diagrams and parts for your car.

Truck shakes when taking off in first gear

This happens from overheating the clutch, and it is caused by a burnt/overheated flywheel and pressure plate, it may be your driving habits, do you slip the clutch allot or have you been stuck where you might have overheated the clutch trying to free the truck from mud or snow?
