Engine Does Not Turn

Hey Guys,

well, let me tell you that my BB project in my 73 Z is almost done, I just need to do a couple more thing before I can fire it up, all the plumbing and accesories are in, however I ran into a problem, I need to rotate the engine to top dead center it and drop the distributor in but I can not turn the engine, I tried a 36" braker bar and the motor does not want to turn, let me give you the specs on the motor.

Fresh built 458 CUI BBC
11:1 CR
Forged Pistons
Stock BBC Oval Port Heads
Air Gap Intake
TH 400 tranny
3600 stall

It seems that the converter got stuck or something, I mean the engine is so hard to turn, that it was almost a miracle to turn it to bolt the converter to the flywhell, not I want to drop the ditributor but I can't seem to be able to turn that monster, any idea of what's going on? perhaps I just need to crank the engine with a tester a little, or I don't know, it might be that the converter is stuck on the tranny and it won't spin, any idea good or bad, send it my way, thanks.

I'll post some pics later.
