You can turn it by hand just dont force it.Are you missing any shims and are all your connections tight.Check for good ground and all connections to starter and battery..

The starter should have come with shims. You may have to adjust the new starter with the shims, so that the bendix, starter drive, meshes properly with the ring gear.
As long as the battery is fully charged it should turn the engine over.
Please let me know what you find.

SOURCE: truck wont turn over
Yes the ignition switch,it is on top right hand side of the steering column,drop column down to the front seat and you will see it,there is a long rod that goes to the switch,and crooks upward,and is lodged in the bottom of the switch,it is a long looking device,with a long looking wire connector plugged into it.It is most likely bad,or the bolts that hold it in place have got loose,and allowed it to move,most likely bad switch.

take the starter out then take a crow bar and try to turn the flywheel if it dont turn then the engine is tied up if it does turn then look at the teeth on flywheel and see if any are missing if thay are repace the flywheel if not check the starter teeth for missing ones if none are gone then have the starter bench tested make sure the bendex on the starter is kicking the gear out if not then you need to replace the starter
