    I replaced my hg and now everything is put together. I'm not sure if timing is off, I want that to be the last possible thing that could happen anything that might be affecting the car to start ? It almost runs but doesn't quite get there.

    probably something to do with the starter, spark or fuel system. Maybe ecu or maybe timing. maybe gas. maybe none of the above.

    Timing. Everything is bolted and hooked up correct. Spark plugs wires in the correct order. I would check timing first.

    CAS on correctly? Stock cams?

    Timing should have been the last thing you check (100X) before putting everything back together.

    Yea should have checked timing again but I was sure about it, I hadn't started car in months so it might just be low battery charge. Will still do a compression check.

    Are valve replacements expensive? As in doing it yourself?

    I have stock cans I think, or idk cams look to be the same, they definitely stock tho. I've seen pics of cans and they should look different as in the design of the holes but they are identical.

    I did a 180 change to my CAS this morning but battery was too low. Would 180 degrees on CAS cause the car not to start ? If it was CAS I thought it'd still start.

    This car has made me want to cry LOL so many problems and I haven't ran it since I got it with a hg problem, it would overheat.

    Check the grounds as well, if grounds are bad then things wont see the right voltages and can cause all sorts of problems. Checking grounds is free and all it takes is a little time cleaning them. Even the youngest DSM is 20 years old by now, its entirely possible, and for a car that has sat there, to develop bad grounds.

    For your valve question, depends what went wrong. If the valve guides or seat are bad, you’ll need to have a machine shop look at it. Just simply replacing valve you can do that yourself with some tools. YouTube lapping valves.

    Valve compressor $100
    Lapping tool and compound $30
    Valve seals $???
