You must be on the wrong stroke .. With the valve caps off turn the engine over watching the intake valve ,when the intake valve opens then closes watch for the "T" in the flywheel inspection hole .. This is TDC ..
inspection hole

where is the flywheel inspection hole? i looked but i didnt find it?
big flat headed allen head bolt to the right of the pull start.
i'm a retard
