I have just completed a rebuild, due to compression loss caused by leaking valve stem seals.
So finally got it all back together, topped up all fluids, including fuel, go to crank it and notice it sounds different than a normal crank. And discovered that the throttle body is blowing outwards.

So my question is, could this be due to my timing being out? (Even one link), if not any help or direction would be much appreciated.
Do you

Yes, the air traveling outward can be caused by two things, either the camshafts are off or the exhaust is plugged.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken

The exhaust is less than 10,000kms old, I removed the rocket cover, both my cams are perfectly aligned, ill Remove the timing cover and check that the crankshaft is aligned properly.
I'll keep you posted
