Installing Motor toubles

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute with a V6 motor and a CD4E automatic transmission. The transmission was recently rebuilt (about a month and a half ago)
I have pulled the motor out to install a engine seal kit and along with checking bearings and everthing else. I am currently trying to put the motor back into the car (the transmission is still in the car). I am having issues in getting the engine to mate to the transmission. I can get it to within a quarter of an inch all the way around of going in and that is it. Bolts line up and hand tight, sleeves are engaging but the crankshaft seems to be in a bind and doesn't turn freely. The car was in use before I started all of this so, so transmission parts are not the issue, torque converter ect...What am I missing?
