FD lenses- how to get them to stop down?

I was out shooting with my 35 F2 today and my first few shots were outside and way overexposed. I noticed the shutter speed wasn't changing when I stopped it down, so I took it off to see if the aperture ring was working, and it was. Then when I put it back on and played with the aperture the exposure was changing. How do I get it so it's not wide open all the time?
