Hi.
I bought a 2009 207 1.4 8v with a head gasket problem.
I’m since removing the head, doing the gasket and replacing the head, the timing has been lost. I’ve tried putting the pins in the cam and flywheel and turned it over, no interference but on the starter, it spins over pretty fast.
with everything back in place, it spins over on the starter and sounds like there is a lack of compression. Occasionally it will backfire from cyl no 1 but it won’t start at all.
I did. Wonder if it was 180° out, so re-aligned the timing with the cam 180° Advanced and it felt the same when turning it over by hand. Compression for the four cycles but really loose in between.
other than using the Pins in the locks (cam and flywheel) is there another way of getting the timing correct?
cheers for any help, sorry for waffling on…
Mart.

Do you have access to a compression tester?
I do, I’ll test it Friday, working away for a couple of days now.
It’s pretty bizarre though, I drove it into the workshop, it was running fine other than a bit of emulsion going on in the top end.
