Default Whats up with my Samurai? Is timing 180 deg off?

Hey guys, I'm new to this site and have searched for a little info on my problem, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. here we go...

I bought an 86 samurai for $600 in rough body shape. The cranked and ran, but had an oil leak from the front end and idled very high (about 2-3k rpm). Everyonce in awhile, it wouldn't even crank... just turn and turn and turn. The first thing I wanted to do was fix the oil leak. Turned out it was the crank seal. I replaced the seal, making sure I kept the camshaft and crank from moving. However, the key on the crank fell out and I didn't notice it. when I went to crank it, the camshaft of course didn't turn.

I read on here now to allign the marks back up and I did that. I put it all back together, now it is hard to crank and if it does, it will idle rough, but at a decent rpm. If you press the gas, it really doesn't do anything. What could this be? Could my timing be 180 degrees off somehow?

Thanks guys!!!!

Oh, the previous owner installed an electric fuel pump if that means anything. Has stock carb with vacuum lines EVERYWHERE. I use it for offroad only. Can I get rid of some of these lines???

Welcome to the site and the addiction. If you are certain that everything is aligned on the front of the block. Timing marks both at 12 o'clock. The rotor should be pointing to the #4 wire. With this done and it will start the timing will be close and can be tweeked later. If it starts and idles rough, might a plug wire or a plug is fouled out. How old is the gas. Check the fuel filter...might need to be changed out. Electric fuel pump....could be low pressure and the carb is starved for fuel. Can't help you with the stock carb and vacum lines, mine came with a Weber.
