Default Re: Need help troubleshooting/timing

No, not 2 compression strokes. One compression and one exhaust. Hold a finger over/in the hole and turn the engine until you start to feel the compression, then just turn the engine enough to allow the pin to drop in the timing gear hole. That should be TDC on compression stroke [if the timing gear didn't strip a tooth or two]. Then set the timing. If that doesn't work, then pull the timing gear side cover and check all the teeth.
