    If I can just add to that Jack...... after you feel the compression stoke ( hence air coming out of number one cylinder ) bring your timing mark up to top

      If I can just add to that Jack...... after you feel the compression stoke (
      hence air coming out of number one cylinder )
      bring your timing mark up to top dead centre and the rotor will be pointing
      at number one , start there ,going clock wise 18436572
