I believe the pin should be positioned at the top, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm going to say that the position you had when the fuel backed up into the carb is 180 degrees out on the cam, and that the valves were opening during the compression stroke, therefore blowing the fuel back instead of pulling it in. If you know where the gear was during this, then take it off, go a complete 180 degrees with the cam, and put it back on. This should get you close enough to for the engine to start, then you'll need to dial it in.

Check all of the battery terminals and cables and check the wires on the starter/selonoid, start from the battery and follow the cable out and check all conections , clean and tighten them and if it still does it the starter/selonoid is bad and needs replacement...

pls do rate the solution

1992 geo tracker firing order diagram

there are 2 engines, watch out those rag books mix them in a toxic soup. ( a real FSM is cheap and far better (ask)
8v it the TBI engine, single injector. I restored a 91 to mint, condition.
why not use numbers, low means zero, 150PSI wide open throttle is normal, and more warm or hot.
the 8v dizzy turns backwards from the 16v
your rotor turns CW, clock wise, crank it and watch it....
so the wires must be laid down per last link below.
if lots of advice, in fact could get it going in 1hr or less. hands on.
when you put the belt in, did you use the right marks?
there are false marks there for other engine usage.
the 60a mark is correct the 80c is wrong.
if you get that wrong, there is no hope. thus this page

here is the dizzy page

easy huh? TDC 0 deg. #1 firing, rotor at red dot.

I have a 93 Geo Tracker with 200000 miles on it. it stalled out in my driveway. we cahnged the fuel pump and the fuel filter. its getting gas but has no spark. Where do we start

4 possibilities 1 crank sensor, 2 ignition control module, 3 ECM, coil/ coilpack. Check codes first this will point you towards the right direction.
If there are no codes then go to the coil/ coilpack

I have a 1991 geo tracker and the motor rotates but will not start and i have spark

First try pouring some gas down the intake system. If it starts you have a fuel problem. If not checked the timing belt or chain to make sure the valve train is moving. If the belt or chain is broke and have it replace you may also need a valve job at this point because of pistons hitting the valves. Also if the belt or chain became loose it might have jumped a tooth or two and the timing could be off. If that seems OK look at the ignition again pull the coil wire off and crank it, the spark should be able to jump an inch, you could also have a bad Cap or rotor maybe wires even. Good luck.

1992 geo tracker will not run

The ECM has a blown capacitor inside it for opening the injector you will most likly need to get it rebuilt, buy a new ,or used ECM had the same problem with my sidekick.

93 geo tracker gets fuel, has spark, cranks but won't start

Since it gets spark and fuel I suspect the low compression to be a large factor. What is the compression in the other cylinders?
