This has no clutch, just a torque converter and a f/r shuttle. The shuttle is the F//r clutch. Just test the pushing power of the shuttle and if it will spin tires or just goes weak. If it works after it has warmed up , the clutches in the shuttle should be good! If shuttle has been hot and clutches are burned, the oil on dipstick should have a burned smell to it, and will lose power when hot.
