It does sound like the timing is off I don't know if you can find an article on the internet about "static timing" the engine basically you get #1 cylinder firing (intake and exhaust valves closed)the crankshaft at top dead center firing #1 piston and then move the distributor so that it is about to contact the segment in the distributor cap for number one plug wire. Remove timing cover and verify timing marks for timing belt.
