1st gear is just like foreplay, it's ok, but you want it to go as fast as you can and get it out of the way so you can get into the real sh*t!

Spark Plug leads on the wrong plug perhaps or maybe the cam timing is now incorrect

Re zero????

if it was to far out it would crunch valves etc or are these motors non interference? if it was only 1 tooth out it would run but very poorley

harmonic balancer may have slipped causing timing to be way out. Try setting timing by finding TDC on your own, then making a new timing mark and go from there

nah not even

use the screwdriver down no 1 plug to find tdc then make sure timing marks are happy. If not, use some white paint to mark TDC and bang all cosy
