Pushing the clutch lever (on the engine) in by hand is extremely difficult. It can be done but most new builders underestimate the amount of spring pressure that is behind that lever. You can wrap a rag around it, that helps, but be prepared for a large effort to move that lever inward enougth to disengage the clutch, especially on a new engine.
