You need a second person to turn the key while you check the timing 
with a timing light.

In a private email to me you also mentioned what I believe is the 
cold start valve. For now, I would just unplug this, because you seem 
to have too much gas, and this MIGHT be caused by the CSV being wired 
up wrong. Disconnecting it may help. If so, you will have a better 
idea of what the problem is. If the CSV is wired up correctly, 
unplugging it will make absolutely NO difference if the temp is above 

If you would be willing to tell us what part of the world you are in 
there might be someone near you who could help. It is usually much 
easier to do troubleshooting like this if you have someone more 
knowledgable to give you pointers and who can inspect things first 
hand. While it's certainly admirable to want to sort things out for 
yourself, a helping hand can go a long ways toward working your way 
up the learning curve.
