Well just realized I have a 1.6 pulley on my 1.8 swap. Could the wrong pulley be my 180* off issue? Suggestions

I don't think they put the crank keyway in a different spot on the 1.8 vs. 1.6 relative to TDC. I think you have a rotated balancer ring either way. Many of the parts are interchangeable between the two engines due to common lineage.

Indeed- and the location of the dowel on the pulley boss is aligned with the keyway on all years as well.

If it had gotten to the point where you could rotate it with your hand, it would by lying on the side of the road somewhere.

If you look at the face of the pulley, you will note a dowel pin protruding through it near the large center bolt and between two of the smaller bolts. When this dowel pin is pointing straight up, that's TDC. This alignment cannot be altered without drilling a new hole in something.

So put the crank in that orientation, with the dowel at the 12:00 position, and look at the timing marks. Are they aligned with the timing scale on the engine? If not, the pulley is toast, plain and simple.

It's way off. I have the car tore apart right now so I have been checking it. Where I had marked my TDC to set my timing last week has moved probably about 5" from where it was lol

either I am getting lucky with this thing or she is about to blow!!!!
