I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level.

We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results.

Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first.

If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
can you set the crank at tdc and then take the dist cap off and take a pic of the distibutor (top view) and a pic of the camshaft gear so i can see it it is installed correctly!!
first off how loose is the timing belt? because that fault is the indication that the timing is out due to belt stretch . so now would be the time to change the timing belt and tensioner roller.
let me know on the pic Mark!!
i need the pic of the dizzy with the cap off at tdc . i need to see where the rotor is pointing!!
ok the dizzy is in the wrong spot that is why it will not run . by looks of the timing belt looks real old so most likely it is stretched.
go to this link and its a video of how to line the dizzy up correctly !!!
lets see after this if the vehicle will run
the pic attached is the dizzy where it needs to be lined up to the small mark on tdc . tdc on the camshaft is in between the O and T. and on the flywheel side there should be a zero lined half way like the second pic . look at B side of the pic that is tdc on the crank.
line up the crank first that is tdc in that window. then the camshaft should be in the middle of the O & T and the rotor of the dizzy should be at the small line of the plastic . that is the correct set up!!
Yhe water pump is separate and not driven by the timing belt so the water pump is not needed unless it is leaking.
you just need the timing belt and the timing belt tensioner roller . make sure it is for an ABA motor not AEG
if the belt was real loose yes it will jump. technically its not a valve bender but i seen stranger things!!
disregard marks on the sprocket just make sure that the rotor is lined up with the mark on the dizzy . small gap mark not the large one!! then get your belt on then once you tension the belt rotate the crank 2 times and recheck your marks . if off adjust accordingly!!
hows it going?
