I checked the distributor and it was 180* off (4 o clock) and I reinstalled it so it was correct. After doing that, I can't get it to fire at all, before it would fire when it was 180 off. I also noticed that every now and then it seems to back fire out of the intake, but very little and not very often. It was doing that before, but it would be a small flame popping out before, and I thought that was a result of the distributor timing being off..
As much as I hate to say It, I think that the valve timing may be off. Is it possible to put it back together with the top end 180 off from the rest? Does it sound like that is possible for me? I was really careful when I was assembling it to line up the marks on the crank and on the cam gear with the plated links that are on the chain. The motor was always at TDC when it was on the stand. This is my first time doing this kind of work on an engine, and it honestly wouldn't surprise me if I messed up but I was very carefull to check everything, #1 was at TDC, #1 valves were closed, and I also thought I put the distributor in correctly the first time as well. Where should I start from now? Brendan
