Put everything back together and now it will not start. It just turns over at an accellerated rate. By that I mean it turns over fast not sluggishly.
Figured I didn't put the distributor back in correctly so pulled the #1 plug and felt for the compression but there is none. Checked other plugs and same thing, no compression. Using the timing marks on the harmonic balancer, I reset the distributor. I got a loud backfire and then same thing - turns over but wont start.
I am guessing my problem is timing. The absence of compression suggests the timing chain, but before I take it apart to that point, am I missing something simpler or is there something else I should test?
Thanks for the assistance.
have the same problem?
