Is that all that is on is the flywheel? Is the clutch, bellhousing, starter, transmission on?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 11 months ago.

Are you turning the crankshaft over by hand or using the starter?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
To turn the fly wheel I had to take off the starter and turn it the other way it didn't turn all the way around just barly half way I put it back together it cranked a little bit and stopped again the starter works just the fly wheel is stuck, I did not remove the fly wheel just replaced the clutch

Is the clutch and transmission installed now?

I put everything back together and the flywheel is stuck
Expert:  Mike S. replied 11 months ago.

Are you willing to remove the transmission and then see if the flywheel still sticks?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Trying to avoid doing that
Expert:  Mike S. replied 11 months ago.

Can you have someone press down on the clutch pedal and then see if the flywheel moves all the way around?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 11 months ago.

Is the engine basically ok and nothing such as a piston hitting a valve? Why did you replace the clutch in the first place? Did the flywheel move 1 full turn while everything was off? Did it move again or did you not check with just the clutch and bellhousing on before sliding in the transmission?

How are you turning the flywheel again? From the front crankshaft bolt head or a flywheel turner tool, etc?

Also, is this a 4wd or not?
