Default Torque convertor to flywheel bolts

I have recently swapped engines and just got the trans and the drive line back in. i am now trying to put the nuts on the torque converter bolts. got 3 of them in no problem, turning the crank with a socket and a breaker bar. the 4th is proving to be a problem. clockwise and counter clockwise i cant get the crank to turn far enough to reach the last bolt. pulled the spark plugs to release the pressure and still no help.

any ideas?

? did the engine turn over before you put it ? it sounds like the engine is blown! in my experience when an engine fails its 1 cylinder that goes (piston rod crank journal valve) and the motor will turn roughly 3/4 back and forth till the failed parts make contact with block crank valves etc. i hope i am wrong but good luck!

+1.
If you can't spin the crank, you've got more problems.
