D16z6 Timing Issue?

    Hey everyone,

    I've been searching around but can't seem to find the answer that fixes my problem.

    I just rebuilt and replaced my cylinder head on my 93 Civic Si. I put in brand new valves and guides, all new seals and gaskets. The head was pressure tested, resurfaced, valve grind to reseat, and had the machine shop put the guides and everything on the head back together. Only thing I had to do was put the cam in and rocker arm assembly.

    I've got the head back on now, but I can't get the car to start. There's spark, fuel and compression. I lined the mark on the balancer in TDC, and the mark on the cam with the mark on the timing cover back plate, and "up" facing up and slightly forward. The rotor in the dizzy is also facing the #1 cylinder, so I'm not 180 out, I don't think.

    The engine comes close, but won't quite start, even when I move the timing belt over a tooth or two.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Phil
