I can clearly see the problem, someone installed your clutch and flywheel backwards.

Put this back together last night, about 90% done:

Cleaned up the bell housing and shift selector...scraped off some of the oily dirt buildup off of the case:

Back in. Adjusted clutch cable, installed starter, need to bolt up the axles, and then it's ready to run:
