7.3 no crank please help!!!

so I pulled the engine because It had 2 bent rods from being hydrolocked sucked up a bunch of water at 2800 rpm I replaced the rods and did a re ring job. I had it completely apart and it turned over as I put the pistons in it got harder and harder and once heads where on it got pretty damn hard to move with a short prybar so I installed it and tried to start and it cranked maybe a quarter inch then its solid it will not turn over what so ever with starter and prybar doesn't budge it I pulled the glowplugs off of driverside bank and all had oil on them down on the tip like theres oil maybe in the cylinders? I didn't have time to pull the other 4 gps out but I will tomorrow any ideas on what could be wrong or why it wont start thanks guys??

Sounds like you hydro locked it which isn't a big deal. Get a breaker bar on the crank bolt and turn counter clockwise to relieve the pressure. Disconnect all injectors(injector harness)pull all glow plugs and set valve covers back on that way you don't make a mess. Then bump the key a few times till it locks up again and repeat till it doesn't lock up. Once it doesn't lock up any. More connect everything back up and start it up. FYI the oil in the cylinders will go into your exhaust, not a lot but enough to make a little mess.
