Not sure of what you mean intake stroke? you can crack fuel line to cylinder 1 and rotate engine manually until you see fuel point of delivery. That should line up with mark on flywheel.

Changed cap and rotor put in new coil but it just turns over and won't start

First you need to determan if you are getting spark, take the coil wire off, ether end...hold it close with a good insulated pear of pliers, to were you removed it from, with out plugging it in, now have someone crank the engine a few times to see if it is sparking. If it is not, you need to dig deeper into the electrical parts like distributor pickup , brain ect....If you have you need to check to see if you have fuel...disconnect the fuel line and hold a rag over it so you don't get splashed, again have someone crank the motor a few time to determan if you have fuel....if not, you need to check for glogged fuel filter, fuel pump relay or maybe fuel pump it self....
This should get you going in the right direction.....

Excessive smoke

sounds like fuel mix is to lean, try another oil, and only use freshly mixed, the gas tears down the oil after even a few days, or as 2 stroks are know for it may be time to rebuild the top end.

We have a 1967 2 strok mercury 65 outboard motor. wont start cold

Wow.It sounds like some people I know.Late starters.Don,t get out of bed 'till 10 am.With all you have written, a check on the operation of the choke (cold start) would be worth looking at.As you crank the motor,squeeze the fuel bulb at the same time and see if that also may help.Hope this helps
