  10. Rebuilding my 27 Buick Standard. I notice after putting everything together the valve push rods don't turn when the pressure is off them. Are they suppose to turn or not??. I just check my 26 standard and only one would turn. I took rocker arms assem off and lossen the nut that hold the cage between the valve push rods and rods would turn. once I tighten them up they wouldn't turn. Also engine turns over very hard with crank. It turned over easier when I put 3/4" rachet on crank shaftnut before putting hand crank adapter on. Is this normal?? Thanks for any help.
