How are you making out with this? New member here trying to increase my posts. I always tell my friends to start with the basics in all no start problems: You need compression, fuel, spark and timing to make a motor run, eliminate these one by one and you will find your problem, once you narrow it down to what system you lack, you can break it down farther, let me know how you are making out, maybe I can help, thanks

I would definitely check the compression, it sounds like the timing is off
