100% Percent NORMAL.
All the high end engines I have had get stuck at TDC, you need to take a screw driver or somthing and loosen the flywheel and try again.
If you cant get it started after loosening it a few times loosen the glowplug a little bit to reduce some of the compresion, once its started tighten it again.
If that fails, heat it up and loosen it a little.
Every engine I have had has the tight pinch.
It will go away after break in (Getting stuck at TDC)
