So cylinder 1 TDC was never an issue, just wanted to confirm i was installing the flywheel correctly because I did not want to pull the trans.
Which you can also verify by having the cam on its timing mark, that's all I was saying- give peace a chance...

Yes but I like to verify in multiple ways for good measure:-) I am at peace, thank you!

Think harder.

You're the d-hole I was referring to, I reckon both valves are slightly open during overlap but it's the top of the intake stroke and the intake valve will be fully open shortly as well as the exhaust valve being completely closed. Go check your ocilloscope for some random waveforms.

So got bored yesterday and wanted to look at the previous engine carnage. Dropped the oil pan and there was NO oil in it. The oil light was never connected on the owners car so he did not know it had no oil pressure. Needless to say, I wired it up to worked (I actually just plugged it back in)

Anyway, after dropping the pan and seeing no oil, I removed a main cap and rod cap. Both had scoring but really weren’t that bad. All rods remained in tact as well. So I’m not sure exactly where the failure occurred. Perhaps the pistons got hot and expanded until she seized?

Maybe somebody had put the flywheel on during the wrong stroke for cylinder 1....
