Default timing after head gasket

hi all i have a 1991 106 1.1 carb ,i am having problems with the timing after changing the head gasket ,i have pinned the crank at the flywheel and the cam in the head using a 10mm drill for the cam and the flywheel with a 6mm bolt, both holes line up fine after turning by hand but it just wont run, i mean it will start and run like crap backfiring and stuttering but only when i move the distributor fully clockwise which i shouldn't have to do but thought it was worth a try ,the only thing i can think of is that i may of put the rocker on the wrong way round if that is even possible ? to me the timing seem out but peeps are saying its not adjustable as it is set with the timing pins ,has anyone got any ideas
thanks in advance
david

If you have a distributor then the timing IS adjustable

Most likely thing is plug leads are not in correct place they NEED to go on the correct order in an older distributor type engine unlike a modern engine.

It might be marked but doubt it 1&4 are opposite each other as are 2 and 3 if you time it up then remove the cap the rotor should be pointing at no 1 lead

Firing order 1 3 4 2 . But are you aware All Peugeot engines ( disregarding the Fiat engines on later cars ) have number one cylinder at the flywheel end? Just a thought.

ok so its running but not perfectly the dizzy cap has seen much better days so i will try swapping that and timing it with a strobe since i have moved the distributor out of it original place but its not back firing anymore turns out its way to easy to time these 180 degrees out lol https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/...ons/icon10.gif
