Like Frank said, dot to dot and valve timing has to be correct unless you have a sheared crank gear key. For each revolution of the crank the pistons end up in the same place. They may be on a different stroke but the cam and valves determine that. If you installed an arc flywheel then make sure you have it set correctly on the hub and the bolts aren't loose. I have had flywheel keys shear after installing flywheels that looked like new and they sheared as soon as I fired it up. Pulled my hair out cause I knew it looked like new but when I pulled the nut off it was sheared, new key and ran fine. Frank asked a good question about what cam as well, the composite cams are bad about stripping but the solid can't.

No way possible on these eongines. You may have a sheared crank gear key. What kind of flywheel? If ARC what did you set coil gap at? Stock cam or race cam? Solid cast cam or press on lobe cam?

The flywheel key looks brand new i physically pulled the key and looked at it it was perfect. Heres my question the cam turns x2 times slower then the crank so couldnt the valve timing be off a 180 deg?

I don't believe they ever made a 16hp flathead single. But I have been wrong before
There was a 16 many years ago, can't remember the #s though.  I believe they were
horizontals. Wouldn't have had a plastic fan.  Seems to me it was on a generator
or a car starter unit.

What he said ^^^^^

If you put it dot to dot then cam and crank are timed correctly. What kind of flywheel did you install?
