Bought this for $200. No compression. Found every valve bent, new piston installed wrong among other issues made by the previous owner. Came with a clymer manual. I tried to find out where the previous owner went wrong in his reassembly and it appears to be in timing. This clymer manual says to put my timing marks at 9 and 12 for both cams and lobes should be facing about 10 for intake and 2 for exhaust. Problem is i get nowhere near this when i go by the book. Anybody ever seen this?

Yup, seen it, fixed the same situation. Leo, the owner of this site has a CD that will help you more than anything. Also there is a manual to down load in one the threads at the bottom, "Download" thread I believe. But for sure, the guys on here can get you all the help you could ever need. The Predator manual if you do it step by step, you will get the timing right on.

With the quality of work that I have seen many so called "mechanics" put out, nothing would surprise me.

thanks for the info on the download but the file has been deleted.  I'm a car mechanic that likes my toys but I dont usually have much luck getting technical questions answered on forums.  This is probably the most ive used one yet but seems good so far.  Debating on a big bore kit, hot cam and an e85 conversion.

The post is fine, there is a Predator section with a "Mod" and a "How To" thread, but it's no problem here. There are several guys on here with a lot more experience with the Predator and Fuji engine than I have. They can really help you out with any issues you need help with. All super nice guys. That's what this place is all about, sharing knowledge and helping each other in any way we can.
