Cummins swap, New ZF5 and SBDD clutch issue

Hey guys, almost done with my 12v cummins swap and were having some big issues with the clutch and trans.

The new zf5 is filled with fluid and appears to be in neutral(thats what it was in when we put it in)

We bled the clutch components pretty good, and can see the pressure plate disengaging the clutches.

The problem is with the shifter, we cannot get it to shift when the trucks is off(havent started it with the trans on).

It feels like its in 3rd gear, but the output shaft says otherwise.


Any ideas on what the issue is? Shifter not in correctly? Clutch not dissengaging enough even with the truck off?

Thanks

pedal is not hard yet, it still needs to be bled.

We assumed you should be able to shift it without worrying about the clutch when the trucks off,

We put a wrench on the crank bolt and tried to turn the crank over, and we got nothing.

The only thing i can think of is that we installed the two disks wrong and it wont let the clutch spin on the input shaft.

I assume we did it right, and I doubt the pressure plate would have went on if the disks were on wrong.
