I check compression and discovered the compression is not good. As low as 35 on 1 cylinder and high of 85 with others in between.
Regarding timing. Wen setting no 1 I think I am correct. My timing marks are about 2 inches away though, I then rotate until my 6 degree mark lines up with pointer. Is that the correct way to do.
I will try again, but I am ready to pull the engine .

Thanks for the good information. It seems odd I can turn it over but the starter cannot
The battery 6 volt is being checked now. It is only showing about 250 CCA fully charged should be close to 900. Maybe a dead cell, although it was new 2 years ago. What battery is common to use for my engine ? 288 cu in. My cables are 1/0 .
If the battery is fully charged and the starter is good and the engine can be turned by hand it has got to be an internal problem??
What can I see from removing the pan
I just keep hoping not to pull the engine, i guess,
Thanks all,
Mike

The starter was rebuilt by a reliable company here is Seattle. They did a complete check out again and a bench test with a load. It was found to be working fine.
I out it back in and tried again. Bothe new 6 volt battery and then 12 v. Plugs out. Both times only only clicks.
I can turn the flywheel ring gear with a pry bar.
When I turn with pry I can move about 2-3 teeth at a time. . However turn to the right ( IEE from back) no noise, turn to the left a definite click,click,click sound.but not from the starter, but more from the main bearing area.

Engine will not turn over

I have had problems getting the engine to turn over. Last fall it got water into #7,8 cylinder exactly how not sure. The engine was turning over with starter motor but eventually stopped completely, I removed head and had water in the cylinder. Since then i cleaned out cylinder 7, 8
Polished up , honed and cleaned as best I couldI could turn engine with prying the ring gear I checked all cylinders , polished and honed. It would turn the engine quite easily with the pry. I re assembled with new head gasket. Using remote starter and 6 volt battery in only turned over 4-5 rotations. I used 12 volt battery it spun engine maybe 10 seconds and seized up and the starter only clicked. Now nothing moves. I am lost as to why the 12v would not crank it

Yes, I do see now that the striker should be adjusted after the hinges are set, thanks for your tip.,

I think you are right. As I try to fit. It is obvious the wood will have to be worked on, thanks for your input.
