Default new clutch troubles

i installed a flywheel and clutch in my 1999 miata. After the install with the car in gear and on the ground i can still turn the motor over with a wrech at the crank... If the car is in gear shouldnt the motor not be able to turn over?, are the splines not lined up?

( car is not drivable yet cant take it for a drive )

Buying a ebay clutch is like buying duralast gold brake pads and going to a track and racing on them... ITS ------- RETARDED AND A WASTE OF MONEY DO IT ONCE AND DO IT RIGHT
