I just finished rebuilding a 1996 ford Escort 1.9L. It dropped a valve seat and ruined the head. I got a head from a junkyard and put it on along with new gaskets all around. I set the timing correctly and now I have no compression and no spark at all. Help me please?

Do you
have the same problem?

The timing must be off. It is a freewheeling motor and you are lucky.

Did you have the head checked? Did you use new head bolts?

Start from scratch and check the timing
