If you can pull the rod that the lower end of the clutch cable hooks to up and out, it is not installed properly.
Take the cable loose from it and turn it so the lever on its end is pointed back toward the back axle. Then lower the rod until it is about 1/8 inch from bottoming out and rotate it clockwise until the lever is pointed straight back at the engine. You should feel it catch and resist turning any farther. Make sure you can not lift it up and out. Reconnect the cable and you are good to go.
