so i decided to get the head reconditioned and bought a stage 3 crow cam 2222549..
so today i put it all back together and as soon as i bolted down the rocker gear i couldnt turn the motor its like the cam lobes were getting stuck, and as soon as i un bolt the rock gear it turns...

cam timing is most likely out, you will need to find true TDC on the engine and setup the cam accordingly

If your not careful, you'll bend a valve or break a rocker.

being a el, it may be the hybrid meaning it has au rockers/ different rocker ratio to early el and ef..

I would say get a known set of ef rockers and try again..
