Ok. For some reason your fuel pump is jot running. Can you cycle key 3 or 4 times and get to start?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i took evrything off reinstalled evrything back ,, togetherr i can turn engine good by hand ,,, again tried to start nothing ,,like 4 to 6 times . ? i decided to take the valve covers off to check timing , what i realise is that the colors on the chain does not match perfectly on the arrows on the Sprockets could bee that an issue or does the chain color travel during rotation and change position ? ,,

Yes the chain colors move while engine is running.
