The timing marks could have not ben aligned properly. What size engine is this so I can check to see if this is a interference engine.


Who did the work- they did it wrong- they didn't know what they were doing- now what? good luck-


Good morning jamnblues...

It was not done right they have to be right or the engine will blow!
