If you're asking can you test that the clutch releases/engages without 
connecting the hydraulic operating parts - yes. It will require extreme 
strength or leverage. A long lever will allow a mortal human to move the 
clutch operating fork. It only needs to move ~ 1/2" at the end opposite 
the throw out bearing. I've done it with a 2' long pry bar.

With the transmission in gear, try to turn the transmission output 
flange. It should not turn if the clutch is engaged to the 
flywheel/engine. Now move the operating fork and see if you can turn the 
transmission output flange. If yes, the clutch is releasing.
