    What leads you to believe you have a timing problem?

    I took this engine apart about a month ago because of a knocking in
    the engine. I put it all back together again, never removing the
    piston or the chain drive. I just checked the bearings and bushings.
    Everything was OK.
    When I tried to start the engine all it would do is misfire or
    It is getting fuel; it is getting spark; but I’m thinking not at the
    right time.
    I would set the left cam mark then the right cam mark according to the
    T1 mark on the crank. But the same back fire. I mean the marks were
    dead on! Then someone told me I could be 180 degrees out. So, I
    started turn the cams 180 out. And now I have NO compression. Now

  4. How much compression do you have? Is ALL of the timing correct? Valve
    timing? Ignition?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if it was knocking and you didn't
    find or replace anything, it will likely still knock. I think that at this
    point in time you should consider taking it to a mechanic. Where do you
    live? Maybe someone knows a mechanic in your area that can offer some
