Do you have a high torx starter? kill switch? if it starts good at 24 deg BTDC base timing without kick back then I would say the timing marks may be off, better check TDC/damper marks again IMO.
I'm glad you brought up the starting kicking back! It did kick back a little when starting, but I thought at first my starter was going bad. I was so focused on the blow back everything else was overlooked for a bit it didnt even cross my mind. I am slowly working my way back on the timinguntil I find the sweet spot. As far as the high torque starter it will be ordered soon. This one won't last long.
