If the engine speed goes up and the truck does not speed up then the clutch is probably slipping.

Could it be distributed I've never replaced it so it's 40years OLD

Lack of power could be a lot of things. Start with a tuneup.

The transmission is not related to the power problem. That is almost certainly a perception issue.

Perception?
