Yep, it's the timing. I went back over my assembly steps when I put the motor together and I realized that when I put the crank pulley on I didn't rotate the crank to TDC so my timing mark was not a zero. Such a bonehead rookie mistake but honestly it's the first time I've ever done a complete motor by myself. I'm disappointed for sure but I won't make that mistake again. Should hopefully have it running in a day or two when I get time to work on it.
