Hi ya Ade (GOMADE) The 75 is a very highly compressed engine . Some guys loosen the glow plug so that they can spin them over then retighten when started. Not ideal . Others use a powerful starter and power it with 24v . That usually spins them ok . Once run-in properly then they should be ok but when new they lock and squeak at TDC until hot . Once you start it run it fast for a tank full and dont idle too slow as it will damage the bottom end. Persevere with it and it will get better. If it locks really bad at TDC then  take it down to Alan at Weston as I have heard of a couple of engines having a fault with the seating of the cylinder causing them to  lock.
