Really appreciate all the input. I have several things to do before I go into it again but I do thank you.

If I read you right, there is some sort of pin on the crank shaft that holds the gear in place. I this correct?

It has no fuel shut off. I got it cranked and it would surge , sputter then surge again finally shut of and would not start.

Well I'm back and the motor will still not run right. I reinstalled the cam after checking the compression relief all is good. Then adjusted the valves to .006 exhaust and .004 intake with piston TDC. Engine turns good but only half starts and sputters. Fire on plug is blue and looks like a torch. When I try to crank I have raw fuel out exhaust and puddle in air intake. Do you think the cam has jumped again? I can open it up again but I'd like some ideas as what to look for. :confused: :confused:

No sir, the gear is I think 6 spokes. Definitely not solid.

I can pill the cam and realign the timing marks, adjust the valves and put her on a test stand but I would really like to know why it jumped time in the first place. :confused: :confused:

It's not a valve problem I took the case apart and looked. The mark on the cam is 4 teeth apart on the crank. What caused it to get that way?

I have an 18.5 intec single on a grass cutter. All stock never opened suddenly starts sputtering and stops. Will not turnover unless plug is pulled. Took it apart thinking some kind of compression relief problem. To my amazement the cam timing is 4 teeth of the crank mark. Can't see anything wrong. Any Ideas what caused this to happen?

Well 182 views and no one has a suggestion of what to try or check? I must not be a member of the club.

Don't think it's the starter, know its not the battery. Will pull the top where I can put a wrench on the crank and turn slowly while watching the valves.

I have an 18.5 vanguard that will not start. Plenty of spark and gas just will not hit. Spins very easy without plug but
I can stop it with my thumb over plug hole. Does the cam have a compression release stuck or is it something else. Would like to know before I tear into it. :confused: :confused: Thanks

Sounds great already gathering parts. With a 12 tooth clutch, what would be gear choice on jack shaft? Split gears on axel easy to change and plentiful.
