OHC230 It might be that the Auxiliary shaft sprocket has moved on you. Have you checked to see if the rotor is pointing to the number 1 pole on the distributor cap when the engine is at TDC? I would check that first and then go back and make sure that you have the right firing order on the plug wires as well.

Mikel89us Have you checked compression? It sounds like its not getting the right amount of something and compression would be the first thing I would check.
