I think these are the questions that'll narrow it down.

If you try to shift the transmission while the engine is running without using the clutch, what happens?

Does it grind? If so, it mean the engine is transferring power through the clutch to the transmission.

If it is not grinding, it mean that there is some disconnect between the flywheel and clutch.

Normally, it is the engine that creates that stopping for the wheels. Because the engine is freely turning, we have to look for another spot where it may be binding.
