Just a couple of things first. The engine stand is bolted to your block right and it's not a home mader that might be hitting the back of the crankshaft? Was the engine hard to turn over before you set the valves. What are the specs on you cam? ie lift and duration. Start from scratch with the lifters backed right off and plugs out. That puppy should turn over with a 1/2" ratchet no problem. If it does then start to set them. How are you setting them?
