Default RE: Starting Problems

Sounds to me like you messed up your timing. It is very easy to do on 4-Cyl engines with intermediate shaft, which drives the distributor. Align your camshaft sprocket and crank pulley marks on their respective positions and visually check that the ignition rotor is aligned with the high tension lead for the number one cylinder.
