Sounds like your clutch shoe is not grabbing the clutch bell. This can be caused by a few issues.
1. You may have the clutch spring to tight and it is not allowing the weights to overcome the spring tension enough for the clutch shoe to reach the clutch bell.
2. You may have to much gap between the shoe and bell or the end gap between the thrust bearing and clutch retainer. This can cause the same problem. When the motor spools up if there is is to much gap between the shoe and bell the spring won't allow the shoe to reach the bell. If too much end gap then the bell will move too far out and again the shoe may not reach or just reach the bell but not enough to fully engage.
3. The flywheel is not secured and it is spinning on the engine shaft. Check the engine collet to be sure it is not longer than the depth of the flywheel. If it is this is not allowing the flywheel nut to completely secure the flywheel down. You may have to grind down the collet a bit to get it to the right depth so that you can tighten down the flywheel properly. Just be very sure to grind it down evenly or you'll end up having a flywheel which mounts out of center and that will create a whole other problem.
Hope this helps.
