To check the compression you remove all the spark plugs get a compression tester screw the tester into a plug hole. Disable the spark and fuel then hold the gas pedal all the way to floor and crank the engine over ten rotations. Then record the readings and move on to the next cylinder to you have done all of the cylinders. Your way is not the correct way and doesnt tell you if you have good enough compression to run. Its also scarey it ran before you retimed it. You should have brought it back to where you got the water pump on if it wasnt running right and incorrectly timed.

Can we atleast check the compression before we deal with the spark and fuel?How do you know you dont have fuel did you check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge?Also how did you check for spark?They rent fuel pressure gauges and compression testers at auto zone. Also have you checked for codes yet?
