I am putting the two halves of an EA81 together and the crank spins nice and smooth until I start torquing up the bolts. even at the 2nd last round of nips the crank won't turn.
Is it possible the bearings are slightly too tight around the crank.
I have backed off all the bolts and the case is still tight together, and now the crank turns.
Is there a trick, I am going in the correct order....
I have had it apart twice now to check,
Its starting to s..t me, I thought I would have a coffee and ask you guys.

It turned out that the main bearing "halves" were not identical, and that I had mixed them up.
Check the bearings carefully -- there's probably a "left" and a "right" for each of them. Remember also that in automotive terms, "left" and "right" are determined when you're sitting in the driver's seat.
