The timing is determined by the key way on the flywheel (fixed) Check fuses, and spark at the plug. If you have a new plug and a good spark, I'd look at the fuel side next. BTW, you actually can advance timing by using an advance timing key. (I have on on my AC 500.)

You have to be on the compression stroke TDC when you set the valves. The marks will line up on the exhaust TDC as well.
