I believe that car used the finger style clutch. You need to adjust the 2speed shoe spring till you hear the car shift. You can do this by revving the car in the air for a second to make sure it shifts. Then put the car and run it to see if it takes a long time to shift. More turns in the shoe will engage later. More turns out it will engage sooner.
