Have you tried adjusting the clutches?

It ran when it was loaded into the pickup. got home started it and as soon as it was put into gear it stops.

Welcome to the forums. If the centrifugal clutch has been taken off and put back on recently, it could be the one-way bearing but if not, then I doubt it's the problem. It would have had to been taken off and the one-way bearing accidentally put back in backwards. Sometimes, a dirty carb can cause what you described. If you don't think it's the carb, it might be the CDI. I've seen some of the old '89-'89 Fourtrax/Foreman 350s do that and it was caused by a faulty CDI.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Right, it has a clutch, it just does it for you when you shift (no clutch lever). I was asking if you can adjust the clutches, most do but I've never worked on this model...
