Ok, I see on your other post about the engine, that this was an in-tractor rebuild.
REmove the clutch inspection cover, and see if the clutch disc moves when the clutch is engaged vs. di-engaged. If this had been sitting for awhile, the disc can rust to the flywheel. The splines can also become rusted.
Best technique to free up a stuck clutch disk (if it isn't too too badly rusted) is to start the old girl up in first gear and with the clutch pushed in, firmly tap the brakes to free it up while running (moving). There are other ways too that are a little more agressive, that I am not a fan of. this of course assumes you have good brakes.
