my guess is the basket and hub have had grooves worn into them by the friction plates and steels and won't slide when under torque..

So much for my guess.. have you pulled on clutch leaver with cable not connected?
should be stiff, never tried it, might not move without leverage of hand lever..
clutch stiffness has me miffed, typically warn disks will cause loss of power as clutch slips under torque

does the cable move freely? lube cable. 3 in 1, MMO, singer sewing machine oil.. what ever is on hand.
