Hello mate, if you do not have a manual, take the spark plug out and the casing off the flywheel, Find a small stick or screwdriver and place it in the sparkplug hole but do not let go of it, then with the other hand turn the flywheel until the piston reaches the top of the bore, then turn the flywheel left and right, then check the marks, this should tell you which one is TDC.

Sounds like a valve timing problem to me. Put the engine at TDC (top dead center). There will be marks on the cam gear that should be aligned with the top of the head casting. This is something that could be damaging to the engine so be careful. A manual is a good investment.

Need help timing 1987 honda xr80..any help with markings for tdc and where to set cam..have no book and bike was more or less in pieces when we got it. robbed top half from slightly older 80cc. bike has...

Backfiring through the carb isn't a timing issue unless you're firing at BDC (180 degrees out).
or have bad/missing/cracked piston rings / hole in the piston.
I mean, correct me if I am wrong, but that thing IS a 2 stroke, right?

Witch marks on magnitio i use to set valve timing in a 2004 rmz 250

With the valve rocker covers off and magneto inspection plug and centre plug removed, turn motor using nut on magneto, counter-clockwise until a line appears centrally in the inspection window. This will be at Top Dead Centre (TDC).
To check this, all rockers should at rebound with all valves closed. There should be a tiny amount of play on all rockers.
If not, (being a 4 stroke) rotate motor one full turn counter-clockwise.
All engine work or strip downs must commence from the position of TDC.

Fly wheel problem on a jeep

if its a 4JX1 diesel, yes it goes in 1 spot yet it can be bolted up in every location
put crank pulley timing mark to TDC can also check by removing cam belt top cover and check timing mark aligned up with mark at 12 O clock then flywheel has small notch in edge that must go at 6 O clock (facing down) look closely it is hard to see due to flywheel sunk into back of block.
