Re: New Engine, Clutch Problem?
I really doubt there is anything wrong with it. Swing the arm in a counter clockwise direction until is stops. Is the arm now pointing to the rear of the engine? If it is so far so good. If it is not pointing to the rear of the engine we may have to investigate further. Lets assume it is pointing toward the rear of the motor. Try continuing to push it counter clockwise. Most people think it is stuck but it isn't. It is just very hard to push in by hand. Try taking a 10mm closed end wrench and put it over the lever. Use the wrench as an extension to the clutch arm. Now you should be able to move it.
