Jim, I know what your feeling because I had the same problem several months ago getting mine to fire for the first time. I kept thinking it was the timing but I had followed the book. In my case it was firing and I had gas to the carb but would not hit a lick. I tried pulling the plugs and squirting a little gas in each cylinder replacing the plugs and then it would hit briefly until the fuel was gone. I then knew that somehow fuel was not getting to the cylinders. I pulled the manifold and found that it was clogged with mud from dirt dobber nests. I guess the wasps had gotten in through the exhaust pipe. I throughly cleaned the manifold, reinstalled, and it fired up first crank. Also you say that at TDC you lined up the timing marks on the govenor gear and cam gear. Also make sure you have the magneto timed with the F mark (Fire) on the flywheel through the inspection hole on the torque tube. The F (Fire) should be centered in the hole right as the magneto fires with the rotor button on the #1 plug wire. Just having the #1 cylinder at the top you might be on the wrong stroke so check the flywheel mark. Mine is a 1939 so I think it would be the same. let us know...Good Luck...John
