I'm replacing head gasket. And the car was running before I started project. Now the crankshaft wont turn to tdc. Am I missing something. I have everything removed. And It wont turn. I'm afraid if I go all out on breaks bar I'll break crankshaft bolt.

No. Head is still on. I dont want to remove Vanos and  head before TDC. Tge only thing i hve still installed is the Vanos, Clynder Head, starter. Everything else is removed. I cant turn it. Ive picked up the back wheels and put in neutral and it wont turn. Could i remove the head and vanos and then try to turn? Then put back with everytging exactly the same?
