Ok. I got every thing put back together this morning and tried to start the WC. I probably cranked on it continuously for about 4 minutes, 1 quarter turn at a time. I got about 3 pops and a couple of backfires out of all that. Oh, and a worn out shoulder. Went back to it about an hour ago and started over with the timing. Finally, I was trying a different approach. I put my thumb on #2 spark plug hole and cranked it over, and when it came up on compression, I looked at the flywheel, and the "F" mark was almost lined up with the bolt hole in the middle of the bottom cover. Is it possible for the flywheel to be installed wrong on the crankshaft?
Since the "F" mark is on #2 cylinder, would that mean that the timing mark is 90 degrees off?
Am I going to end up pulling the engine out to fix this?
