Customer Question

To David Nova
That last answer was awsome.It was the right marks for timing.
I got excited when I found them,and then I lined the marks correctly.
I took the timing belt off then set the bottom main crank marks that you showed me and the top cam mark to the v shaped mark.I then put timing belt on.
That didn't fire up so I took timing belt off again and turned bottom marks one full turn.
That didn't fire up either.
The motor wants to fire but a small backfire instead.
Could you advise me on some other causes to get it started please?
