Hi all
Followed the procedure again and this time I managed to stop the sprockets from falling off so progress. Tried checking the firing order/valve sequence and if I do 1-3-4-2 I can get the rotor arm in the right position with both valves for each cylinder closed so should start...seems I was here before last year when I put the engine together. I have tried following the valve open shut sequence but it seems all to pot so I might put the protractor on the flywheel so I can turn the engine from the front. I think I need to get my mate Terry over to give me another pair of eyes on what is going on.

Had a think and decided to check each valve starting to open based on the info in the repair guide so inlet opens at 15 deg BTDC etc...with this method I could feel the tappet clearance close down the nearer you got to the setting so I checked all 8 valves for opening and they seem to do it where they should be so I'll put it all back together and test it out tomorrow.
