Is the "piston #2 top comp" a typo, you mean Piston #1, right?

If you set your initial startup firing to #2, you need to change it and verify everything else, firing order, compression stroke on #1, TDC, etc.

Put the #1 cylinder on tdc of the COMPRESSION stroke. Install the dizzy with the rotor facing the #1 post and connect the rest of the wires in the correct order.
