The belt is fine,no 1 row off and the bearing is fine too(checked it when I had the clutch out) so I would think that I put too much fluid in it.Possible?
Anyway I will take it out again and drain some of the fluid out and see what happens.
Keep you posted.

Too much fluid will cause the clutch to be engaged all the time. It should run for a couple seconds on cold start (or warm actually, if it's been sitting a while) until the fluid spins out of the working chamber into the reservior. If you have too much fluid in there, there will always be some in the working chamber since the reservior is full before it's all out.

I'd try draining a bit out, or you can just leave it alone -- if it leaked out before, it will continue to do so and eventually work correctly.
