Finishing clutch replacement...My crank won't budge

Hello all,

Today I bolted my flywheel, clutch and pressure plate in. I wanted to spin the pressure plate to reach the bolts on the top of the plate, and I found that it would not budge. I even tried turning it with a breaker bar at the crank, and it won't move in any direction.

When removing the old components, I could spin everything by hand. Per Clark's Garage, I had been bracing the crank against the ground with the breaker bar to remove the flywheel bolts.

Thanks to a debilitating car accident, this clutch job has lingered on too long.Any ideas? Please help!
