i removed a spark plug, and assembled it in the coil. I made the appropriate grounds to the coil and plug. the plug was located over the plug hole, and with the ignition on I cranked the engine. I saw spark at the plug, and on the second rotation I had fire coming from the hole. Now I see I have ignition, Gas in the cylinder, but no running engine. I removed the front valve cover to look at the timing chain. it looked good and tension was good. i rucked the engine back and forth by turning the front pulley, and the tension stayed good. Now what?
