When I tighten both caliper bolts that hold the brake pads in place then the rotor will not turn by hand at all. If I unloosen them some then they will turn but the pads rub against the rotor. How much is to much?

I agree- you have an improperly installed or incorrect brake component(s). What set up are you installing? Can you take some pics?

I think it might be the clip that goes inside the piston that holds the brake pad.

I think its good to go now, the clip wasnt attached at the top of the pad. With the wheel on it spins. I havent ran any fluid through the front brakes since changing over to disc. When I put fluid in there, do you just pump the brake pedal to properly seat the pads to the rotor?
