how do i put the upper timing chain in time? i blew a head gasket, and i replaced it and the car still woudlnt run; so then i checked the compression and its 90-95 on cylinder 1, 50 on the 2nd, 60 on the 3rd, and 100 on the 4th. Everyone i have talked to just keeps telling me that the car isnt in time. Apparently the chilton and haynes manuals are both wrong. I need to know where, and what to line the marks up with for every gear on the upper timing chain.
thanks,
LEH

i bet you didnt put the chain on there right. so cams are off which woudl explain low compression .

did you take head to mashine shop to get it checked for warpage or cracks?

make sure your distributor is not 180 out that will make car not run.

set it to TDC remove teh distributor rotate crank 360 and put it back in (make sure its set on 1cyl) and try it then.
