    so you can crank it by hand and it will start and run? but won't when you try the key?? might want to look into the ignition switch and/or tumbler. also check to see that your clutch switch is still good. i remember mine used to do that when mine was rotted out. you can just bypass to see if that is it.

    Being able to turn it by hand, and the timing don't shit to do with each other. If your timing is off, it will not turn over.

    did you prime the fuel pump?, disconnect your ignition coil wires from te dist, and turn it over a couple of time to get the fuel going.

    turning over and starting are two diffrent things.....
    starter wasnt the problem of it not cranking over...(it was the battery terminal)...

    language barriers fucking suck ....descriptive termanoligy is the problem with all writen communication..
