pa50 clutch stuck on, variator turns over engine

I just got a pa50, and I'm having an issue i can't figure out, its like the clutch is stuck on. I've taken the variator pulley off, the starting clutch looks fine, and the variator pulley spins freely as soon as I loosen the bolt holding it to the crank, but when I tighten it, the engine turns over when I turn the variator. Am I crazy or is something wrong

Did you take off the nut under the plastic cover?

I found out my problem, the clutch plate was worn down and there wasn't enough spacing between the bell and the plate
