Ok the crank was machined wrong,after a month of trying to figure out why it wouldn't turn, having the guy at the machine shop tell me it's not the crank? two different times, he insisted it was the block, so after two sets of bearings, having it line honed, it still didn't turn. turns out he turned the crank on the heavy side to try and improve oil preasure, what a nitemare!
