Trying to put my caeses together with my homemade poster board gasket and when I tighten up one bolt it wont turn. I back it off like half turn and it will roll. I know the original gasket wasn't even as thick as the poster board. So what is the problem? I have all my thrust washer on both shafts. Any help would be appreciated.

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. 

GOOD LUCK!

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.

I figured it out. It was one of my welch plugs that got pused in too far some how. Also my guide pins had primer on them and case wasn't going all the way and putting in a bind. Thanks for the help.
