Re: Timing\" HELP\"
You need to have the timing marks on bith the cam gear and the crank aligned with the marks on the block/guide, don't have the crank at 10*, have it at TDC as well. The 10* mark means spark fires 10* before the iston reaches TDC..nothing to do with aligning the belt.
If you were 180 off you would be backfiring like mad, if running at all (been there, done that). I think your problem is you have the marks off and just need to reset them.
