    check fuel pressure is your fuel pump running when you turn the key on

    Fuel pressure fine. Figured out its the timing chain..... was able to get it running barely a couple times using the key to pressurize the fuel line a couple of times had it up to 1100rpm at one time.... does anyone know this engine? What are the chances I've damaged the engine?(slamming pistons into valves). Or perhaps there's enough clearance and with good compression I didn't hit anything. Thanks!
