timing is off?

ok go engine rebuild put together and the only way i can start is is turning the distributor all the way outward. (when looking at engine turn outward from body) either it's retard or advance i forgot which is which. and if i put it about in the middle i won't be about to start it. only start when i turn it all the way outward. like i said either retard or advance forgot which one.
anyone know what's wrong? is it that the timing for the head and crank not correct?

Re: timing is off?

and replaced flywheel with aftermarket one so it doesn't have the timing mark on it.

You have too much timing advance. To advance timing, you rotate the dizzy towards the firewall, to retard you rotate towards the radiator.

It sounds like you didn't line everything up properly when you put the timing belt on.

Use this for reference: ENG: universal - How to do H22 Timing belt removal and install

Re: timing is off?

Your crank and cam pulleys both have timing marks in case your Flywheel is incorrect. Could be your T-belt advanced when you installed it, did you properly do the tension procedure on your belt after putting it on?

Re: timing is off?

Hey wild kit lude just like the guys said your timing might be off , But simple way to see if timing is of , this how o basic , first remove the 1-spark plug ,then turn engine counter clock ,use a slim long screw driver and put it in the1- plug hole it should be hitting the top of the piston ,witch is ready to fire ,then make a reference mark on the cap out side where the 1 spark plug is plugged to, remove the distributor cap ,after removing the cap then look at where the rotor is pointing ,it should be pointing at the 1 n#spark wire on the distributor cap ,this your TDC .This is for you to have an idea before you taking every thing apart .P.S TURN THE ENGINE BY HAND WHEN SETTING THE TIMING .

Re: timing is off?

I'm sure another suggestion is un-needed, but I have nothing else better to do...lol

get your physical timing set perfect.....

line up tdc mark on flywheel, make sure cam gears are lined up to tdc... and do the #1 spark plug trick like JohnL114 mentioned above... (thats importand so you don't get your timing off by 180 degrees)

when your physical timing is perfect, ignition timing will fall into place.....

if you have an auto tensioner..., I feel for you man.... I managed to make a little tool that worked for me... but I got lucky.... it's a beeatch
