It should not be loose, but you should be able to rotate the flywheel at least one revolution one pry at a time with plugs out. If it comes up against something solid, then you have an internal issue. Please try that and post back. I would do this with the clutch in first time.

could also have liquid in the cylinders, if a gasser then pull the plugs, squirt in a little oil and crank as suggested.

Take the cover off, the bottom and then turn it back, with a big screw driver or what ever you can get some leverage with, take the plugs out if it's a gas, squirt some motor oil in there too,maybe two shots with a pump can! Was it a running tractor when u bought it?
