Sounds like that one bolt is just a touch long. No big deal. You can grind the end of it off and it should be OK. Run a nut up the threads of the bolt first then after you grind the end of the bolt off and remove the nut it makes the threads true and ready to install in the case. IF the bolt holes go through and into the gearcase you might need a dab of silicone on the bolt threads so it doesn't leak.

I had a look at the photos I took when I had mine apart. On mine, none of the bolts could contact rotating parts inside the gearbox. The large gear does sit in two blind hole, and that is when I would start. Pull it apart, clean the holes really good & maybe re-try it without the large gear installed to see if the input & outputs will turn freely. If they do, put the large gear back in without the input shaft & see if the output will turn. Try to narrow it down to one of the three gears or the chain.
