Yes it would.
I understand what was done, I'm not ready to jump into things that are dependent on basics.
Doing this will verify that you indeed have the number one cylinder firing at the right time. Say you put the rotor on backwards?
Since this problem wasn't present prior to your work, it means:
An ironic thing happened that we don't know yet but will be dependent on basics that should get checked.
There was somthing you did to get you in this pickle.
Good techs have the ability to no get overconfident and question themselves from another angle.
Anyways, pull the number one plug out. Take a screwdriver with a long handle and measure how deep the piston is and mark the screw driver with elect tape or what ever. Bump the starter, recheck and remark if it came up higher. Continue this until the piston drops. You should have a good idea of where the highest point is by the lowest point on the screwdriver. To fine tune it, you can manually spin the motor over with a socket and a breaker bar on the crank.
Once you have it there, check your rotor position.
Make sense to do this to you?
