Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a mechanical issue but the engine is going to be harder to turn as each cylinder comes up on top dead center during it's compression stroke.

Are you unable to turn the engine at all, or does it get harder and easier to turn throughout a revolution but you're always able to turn it?

What are you turning the engine with?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
By hand if use stArter dont turn ween i put sparkplug all the rocker arms ar correct do the have someting to di whit the lifters those ar mds a i but the car on parts i not sure if the lifters are correct in the piaton some models are diferene i belive these one is 1 -7 - 2- and 4 pleSe senmw the lifters order please

How was the timing chain installed?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Correct the cam at 12 aclock the crankshaft at 2 aclock its aniting have ti do whit lifters i need to now if i israled right
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 9 months ago.

The lifters aren't going to cause you to not be able to turn the engine.

The engine is out of time if you had the crank mark at 2:00, the valves are hitting the pistons. The crank mark needed to be at 6:00 with the cam at 12:00. The crank mark corresponds to the single mark on the chain at 6:00, the cam at 12:00 goes between the double marks.

I have wrong book show diferent
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 9 months ago.

If it shows the crank gear dot anywhere but the 6:00 position and lined up to the single mark on the timing chain then it's definitely incorrect.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Book show cam 1 link mark crank show 2
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 9 months ago.

The crank mark is at 6:00 with the single link, the cam is at 12:00 between the two marked links.
