How easily should I be able to spin the engine by hand? (Rebuild)

I'm in the process of rebuilding an RX-7 3rd gen 13B-REW. I've already reassembled my entire engine along with the accessories and I didn't read any thing in the FSM to spin it to see if it can freely do this... I watched a video and saw that this guy spins 13B (unsure which type of 13B is this) with ease, so I tried to do it on my engine. I can't complete a revolution at all! I could spin it one way and the other until it can't be turned any further. Did I screw up the rotor placement? I followed the FSM's instruction, but I may have screwed it up when I had to rotate the e-shaft a little to get the mid iron to clear the eshaft.

Ah, how do I delete this thread?... It freely spins now... Guess I just had to play with it a bit.
