I can push the truck back and forth while in gear and engine does not turn.

Clutch is disengaged or disc is broken.

I hope you find the trouble and get her back on the road, but before you do, please replace the bolt and wing nut on the brake pedal clevis with a proper pin and cotter pin. It would be a shame to get rolling only to lose the brakes when the wing nut falls off.

Sounds like the clutch disc center broke free. Does the engine turn over when you push the truck back and forth while in gear?

I agree. Pull the engine. I think the Clutch plate is broken.

The clutch facing on the flywheel side could have broken loose from the clutch disk. If so, the clutch disk might spin when engaged in neutral, but not turn when the trans is put in gear and clutch released. Try that and let me know. In any case it seems the problem is with the clutch and you will just have to take it apart.

Well, I got it apart and found some pieces. I read where I was supposed to install the clutch with the shorter flange on the clutch toward the flywheel. Well I honestly don't remember considering that on the install. Is that why it failed? Or do they just fail from time to time?

Look for any contact points and check the clutch plate, and yes, the disc installed backwards can lead to unwanted clutch plate or flywheel contact.
The picture is lo-rez but the shiny damaged spring cages tell the story, looks like they hit the flywheel bolts or plate fingers..
