If I was one out on the cap and advancing it to get it to run right I would be able to get the initial timing set to 15* by turning the cap enough, althoug it might take a lot of turning. As it is, I can't get an initial timing of 15* no matter what without the motor dying/backfiring.

The mark on the balancer does line up with the tab. If I manually turn the crank untill #1 is at TDC compression stroke (I can feel the compression with my finger @ the spark plug hole plus I can see that both valves are closed), the makings on the damper line up perfectly with the tab.
