It is more than likely that the "Belvedere" spring for the forward clutch is broken,this is a diaphragm type spring,should it crack it will no longer be strong enough to hold the pressure on the forward clutch pack,you would have to remove the shuttle box to replace it,I am taking it your machine has manual forward/reverse change and not electric,if its manual change the setup is,engine torque convertor,shuttle box,four speed gearbox,propshaft and back axle,if it is electric change the shuttle box and the gearbox is all one unit and it does not have that spring and the problem could be electric,but I think for an 84 it should be manual.come back if it is manual and I will tell you how replace the spring.
