I have done a number of N engines and never had one like this. Very curious to know what is the cause. Probably "pilot error".

Sorry I couldn't have been more help.

I've gotten pretty good at rebuilding them. Not because I'm good, but because I always end up in your shoes and break them back down if they're not right. There's a poster at work..."If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over."

Good luck and let us know what you find.

JC: You've been more helpful than you realize. Thank you. Loosened the pan this AM and the engine was somewhat easier to turn. Will remove same tomorrow and check each main and rod cap and bearing. Also, this may help you. On the next tight rebuild, try using mineral oil in each cylinder before another teardown. Mine turns easier after I started using it. Much easier than with plain motor oil

Sorry about the repeat. I thought my computer had dropped one reply.

JC: Your suggestions and input are more helpful than you know. Thanks. Loosened the pan this AM and the engine turned somewhat easier!!! Will remove the pan tomorrow and check each main and rod cap and bearing. Also--learned something that I will past along. Tried lubing with motor oil and that didn't help much, but bought some mineral oil and pour3d it in each cylinder--engine turned much easier--not great but better.
