trying to remove harmonic balancer to replace timing belt

Engine will not turn over. Truck has a new battery in it, I checked the cables and both are in excellent shape. Cleaned ground cable at engine block, and positive at starter. Can put a jump wire on starter and will work. Clutch switch looks ok, but could this be tested some way to make sure?
