If the engine revs up and the truck barely moves either the clutch shoes are not engaging the clutch bell or the slipper clutch is loose and is slipping too much.

This could be due to any or all of the three sensors going bad: oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor or the MAF sensor. Connect the diagnostic tool if the check engine light is ON to find out the codes, as this would narrow down your problem.

Engine will fire but wont get gas new gas lines if fires wont stay running when you pull trigger talked to hobby shop and they had me rest screws for gas and air flow now wont start

Check fuel line that goes from exhaust pipe to fuel tank. Make sure there are no leaks. With fuel in the tank remove the line from the exhaust pipe and blow in it. The fuel in the tank should move and bubble.
