i recent hydrolocked my engine. i pulled the 4 pistons out and replaced the bent connecting rods and bearings. problem is i can get 1,2,3 pistions in and torque and the crank spins with ease. when i tighten 4 it wont budge. even when the bent rods were in i could budge it a little but now nothing. just trying to figure out some options. thanks

    Are you putting lubrication on the bearings and cylinder walls? Are the bearings the correct size? What if you try it backwards? Do the cylinders one at a time from 4 to 1 spinning the crank each time to see if there is binding.
