It should turn fairly easily. Did you lubricate all parts before assembly? Did you put the correct number of shims under the bearing plate? Is this with the head still off? I check fit and movement as I assemble. DO NOT force anything. Post some pics and we will figure it out. Good Luck, Rick

If you think something isn't right, it probably isn't. Check for anything external. Something binding the flywheel, etc.
If nothing external, Probably Time to open her back up before serious damage happens.

I'm with MH81. If you cant turn it by hand start taking things off until you can. Spark plug first. My guess would be rod cap 180 out. When I assemble an engine I check movement after installing each and any moving part. Don
