Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! What is the engine model number? Need the numbers, example, SV735-12345. The timing marks do not always relate to TDC on the piston. Always go by the factory marks, as someone previous, could have made there own marks, before dis-assembly. Also have you checked the key between the flywheel ad the crankshaft? That is the second timing mark!
