I wouldn't crank the engine over until you have the timing correct.This is a good way to bend a valve if one makes contact with a piston.
And what MoC said about the dots, and Matt about the 90*.
The easier way to do this would have been to put the new parts on, so they matched up to the old ones.
I would have done it that way but I was the one who put this chain one a while back. The jeep has been a total rebuild and hasn't ran in a couple years. It tried to get it running the other day and it wouldn't start. I had fuel and spark but it wouldn't fire. Timing was the only thing I could have wrong and after messing with the dizzy, I couldn't get it to start. I had to go back in to make sure the chain was in right. Looks like I was a tooth off. I hope this helps
Well guys I tried to start it last night and got the same result. I now have found a major vacuum leak at the intake manifold because its resting on the new borla header in three spots. I'm pretty sure once I get this fixed she should start and idle I her own...I hope! It sucks doing things twice over but sometimes that's how it goes I guess?
Well guys good news, she is running and running on her own. After I fixed the manifold vacuum leak it started right up and idled nicely. I didn't even set the timing or cal the idle control valve yet. Of course tho this thing don't wanna give up without a fight! From me cranking and cranking turns out I put a beating on the starter. Now it's staying fully engaged while it idles and it sounds bad. New starter tomorrow and everything should be a go! Thanks for all the ideas and help!
