Engine Does Not Turn
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
Stock BBC Oval Port Heads
Air Gap Intake
TH 400 tranny
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.
