The clutch was slipping? Rebuilding the trans won't fix a slipping clutch.

I replaced the clutch brand new. The clutch isn't the problem its the transmission it self not catching

I don't know what "catching" means. Is it jumping out of gear or grinding? What exactly is going on? I suspect you did something wrong when installing the clutch.

No jumping out of gear or grinding just stopped pulling not catching sorry

Check the clutch. Unless you grenaded the transmission or broke a shaft inside it should still work.

Something inside is broke but didn't make any noise. I'm looking for a website or anything direction on how to fix it

You have my opinion but if you rebuild the transmission I would leave it to a pro. Is the shifter linkage hooked up? You might want to double check that.
