Did the engine jump timing before you disassembled it? If so, that would have thrown everything out of whack. The best thing to do is start from scratch. Set the cams and crank to where they need to be to put the correct cylinder at top dead center (TDC). It's usually cylinder #1, but not always. Does the new timing set have dimples on the sprockets to help line them up? HTH. -Jim
