It’s most likely 180 deg out of time. It’s very easy to make this mistake. 

There are also a few different marks on the flywheel. Make sure that you have the correct mark and make suite it’s on the compression stroke when aligning with the cam. 

Aside from the few things listed above the only other things I can think of is the timing chain is jumping off of the sprockets ? Or the pick up coil is loose delivering the spark at the wrong time.

Yea figured it was out of timing as well but set it tdc then aligned cam marks parell to head cams facing away from each other.. There is only one mark on flywheel. Other marks are lil punch marks about 4 or 5 of them around flywheel..tensioner is working properly so its not jumping teeth..sounds like it sparking at wrong combustion..how would i check to see if its not 180 out?

So let’s back up for one second and recap.

Did you pull the head off of so why?

Did the bike run while you own it?

reason I’m asking is in my experience I’ve missed things during a rebuild back in the day and had to go back to see where I failed.  

You are missing something. I looked at the manual and can see that there is only one timing mark that’s labeled “c” ? 

The  lobes state they should be facing downward and there is a small hole on tye cam sprocket that should be on top ? 

I would go back double check that. If all looks right then I would look at tye triggger cool maybe it’s loose ? 

Can you post a few pics of the timing marks you see on tye engine as well as the top end cam and sprocket ?

Yes i pulled head off to instalm new shims.no guy said all he did was changed starter clutch n it would never fire for him after that so i reset timing n still nothing. Cams dowward as in tapered part touching valve buckets? If thats the case then yea there off. I have them at 45° facing away from each other as cam sprokets marks are parallel to face of head.

Cam lobes facing down, sprocket marks parallel to the head cover and the sprocket should have a small hole on the top side about 1 o’clock ish.

I dont get what he was doing when he said he reaches his hand around on clutch side n rotates it.? Does the pick up coil have to be aligned up with that rasied edge on the flywheel. Cus the way i have it at tdc pick up coil isnt in center with it.

Also when at tdc everything lines up on top end except for flywheel mark doesnt line up on case mark.pickup coil instead lined up with raised edge on flywheel either idk if that's normal or not.?

Yeah I’ve got an 07 board out 30 over and when I go to start mine at either spins without catching the flat will or when it does catch I hear almost like a grinding sound like my clutch has blown apart or something and interested to read more about this

First time I test drove it I actually scared myself which gave me a healthy dose of respect for it.

My 2007 ds650 has a similar starting problem, but not as extensive. I can push start Mine anytime and it will start but when I go to use the starter it just spins and sometimes makes a grinding sound not sure what exact parts I need.

      So this '02 Taurus with only 87k miles on her starts right up every time multiple times a day except for twice in the last 3 weeks. The first time was 3 weeks ago and the second was today. It happened the same both times. Turn the key and stop to let the pump prime, then when I turn to the start position the engine turns real slow and sort of in fits. Usually when a battery is low the engine turns slow but in rhythm. During my 2 starts the engine barely seemed to turn and the crankshaft rpm seemed to vary. On both starting events I let off the key and tried to start 2-3 times with rests in between. But then eventually on the 4th try it starts right up just as quickly as a normal start.

      I have No clue as to what might be causing this. Only thing I know to do is, next time it does this to put a voltage meter on the battery to see if it's weak. Actually though, because both events the engine ended up starting up like normal that would indicate something other than the batt. Electrically this car is a little odd though. The interior light never comes on when the doors are opened, for years, and then last week it comes on twice when one of the rear doors is opened.

      Pushing the start button the engine turns and will forever without starting. But if I use the kick start it will start with one or two kicks everytime, any idea as to what is going on. New good battery and coil, I'm ready to try anything. It's a great bike, but this is getting anoying. Thank you.

      Last time I installed a remote start system it was on an old Dynasty whose wiring was too delicate to work on really. A couple weeks after installation it started ok but a ton of white smoke came from under the dash. I uninstalled the entire system and everything was fine after that.

      So in picking out a starter for this '02 Taurus I want something simple that will work with this car well. The start systems I'm seeing are generally designed to do door locking and unlocking, trunk release, etc. As this car already has those functions on a fob I won't be using any function on any future remote start system other than the remote start.

      Can anyone with knowledge of my car recommend a decent but low cost / low extra functions start system that would work well with my Taurus?

      Thanks

      Hi all new to the forum I have a Yamaha Moto 4 champ (100cc?) (YFM100) so I've been trying to get this thing to start for awhile honestly I'm running out of ideas so I'll start with the things Ive replaced and done first it was not trying at all and then I put a brand new battery then the terminals broke so I bought some nice copper ones fixed that up so now battery is got good voltage and all that I have checked all the plugs cleaned everything off so anyway it still wasn't trying but I couldn't get the crank case off and I didn't think using fire was a good idea lol so I busted the crank case off on the left side(if you are sitting on it) wierdly enough the flywheel started spinning I thought it was odd but went with it then I replaced the spark plug still wasn't getting spark so I replaced the ignition coil then it was getting spark next the carburetor was really gross I cleaned it out still wasn't working so I in turn decided just to replace it with a new one so I did (PS I never figured out how the fuel lines hook up if someone wants to help with that to lol) also for good measure put a new air filter so then I pressing the button Everytime I replace something and nothing so then I think what if it's the stator so I have no idea what a good or bad stator looks like but me being to rough I broke the wires on the thing but still no changes the fly wheel spins gets compression (I think) getting spark from spark plug idk other tidbits that might be useful I don't have a clutch line so idk if that has something to do with it I do have the break zip tied in to bypass the safety feature also the throttle cable is in fact broken and I'm working on buying a new petcock for my gas tank because my current one is broke I have very limited money this is supposed to be a project before I go to school for welding and automotive tech so I don't have any money to get a mechanic lol but I'm pretty confident in my ability to do anything u suggest any suggestions are welcome I'll edit and submit pics
