Don't stick anything in the spark plug hole.....#1 TDC is no good unless it is on the compression stroke. Put your finger over the spark plug hole tight. When the compression pushes your finger out you are good.Then go through your cold timing process. If all is good there your valves are too tight. If you have been messing with this thing cranking and cranking you probably do not have any assembly lube left on the cam.Not to mention cylinder wwalls washed clean with all of the gas being pumped into it.
