Do you have any crankshaft thrust play before you tighten up the cover?And do you have same with cover tight? Sounds like you are losing crankshaft thrust, which tries to lock the engine. Is there any crankshaft shims/ washers to adjust thrust?

The only shims that were used was for the connecting rods on cylinder 3

OK, but do you have any crankshaft end play? You need some!
