Hey Dave! Thanks for the help bud! I just took the coils and spark plugs out and looked inside, nothing suspicious! I turned the crankshaft counter clockwise and it only spins to 350 degree and stops and I can spin it back to clockwise for another 350 degree back! I got the engine with 80K miles on it from a seller on eBay with 1123 stellar reviews of 100%. I am an idiot, I should have payed more attention to the flywheel when installed on new engine and see if it turns the whole way before attaching everything to the transmission. I am pretty sure I seated the torque converter properly as I followed the Hanes manual and made sure of the clearance in the bell housing as well. I attached the flywheel to the torque and torqued the bolts as well. (I hope that this is not the issue as I am too tired to remove the engine again from the transmission and double check everything. Question:
Can a locked transmission cause the crankshaft not to turn? (I assumed that since it's a new engine the computer might not have recognized it and once I put the battery back on it might? (then again, If I put everything back together and it's not working I will have to take everything out again haha!)
I will see if I can remove the covers to look at the rocker arms tomorrow and see if something is a miss. Thanks for your feedback!
If anyone else have any ideas I would very much appreciate them!
