No offense intended but a lot of guys here r telling you cars wont statr when its cold
Your question stated you had the block with the crank in it n were trying to turn it over by hand, the crank has contracted the same as the block so you r right in assuming it could be the oil,I dont think so,the light bulbs should tell you.
BTw when u guys say engines turn over slow cause its cold please consider pistons, comp ratio, battery voltage,oil pump,cam ,lifters etc all these add to the friction coefficient,yes its hot in Alabama this winter day, its 65 out n sun shining

im not following you What is it that you mean?

Boy, just the thickness of assembly lube gobbed all over the crank and then tightening the caps down can cause that tightness then add the cold factor below freezing that lube is probably a sticky mess. I assemble the crank with oil because it doesn't get much warmer in my garage in the winter than Michigan.

So its a lot of Finns there? My Grandpa was a timber man in Alaska fore some 20 years or so, So he spoke English @ home so my mother learnd English that way and passed it on to me. And my dad learnd English on his own as a young man!
he read about dragracing and he got hoked right away! So he was race ready when Finland had its first official street race sometime in the 70s. in the early 90s he was the Finnish Champion in Competition Guess with wath a dragster with a 2.3l BMW m3 Engine 340hp N/A And The First 5 Speed Liberty Equalizer To Europe.

A very interesting heritage, that you have there. I sent you a personal message. BTW My father was a logger all his life other than the last few years, he operated his own small sawmill, which I suspect was really his lifelong dream. First time he ever had money.

light bulbs

The light bulbs should heat the assy. enough to decrease the viscosity of the oil.
If you increase the temperature of oil the viscosity will decrease thus taking the "thick oil" out of the picture.
If it still turns over hard after warming the assy. up with the light bulbs then of course the root of the problem will be somewhere else.
If it turns over easy after warming then the high viscosity of the oil was your promblem
I hope this makes my explanation a little cleare for u.......

All right Why didn't I think of that ? Set up the engine stand right next to the dining room table or kitchen table, which ever the case may be, that way you have plenty of room for your tools and parts on the table. Handier to the coffee pot also.

Yeah, with a Harley you have to keep a drain pan under it, it was the same way with my BSA that I had a hundred or so years ago.
