Crankshaft won't turn by hand

i'm in the process of rebuilding my sbc. i got the crankshaft in a torqued to spec and it spins freely. After i installed a connecting rod and piston i can't turn it at all as soon as i loosen the rod cap a lil bit it turns freely. i'm stumped on what could cause this. It is a reground crankshaft the came with matched bearings.

I also have a question on whats the best way to remove a new piston from a connecting rod?
