If you got them so tight that they wouldn't turn and then went 1 turn down, then you may have bent the push rods. Take them all out and roll them on a flat surface to check them.
It sounds like you did everything right, you just didn't have the "no lash" touch yet. Rotate to you feel a drag and then one more turn. A lot of rodders only go 1/2 or 1/4 turn to keep the lifter from pumping up and hanging a valve open at high RPM. I'd stay with the ONE turn on your motor.
