it looks like the crank sensor is on the front of the engine in the 7 o,clock positon next to the harmonic balancer pulley.it has a lot of oil on the connector, maybe I`ll unplug it and clean the oil off.
the only thing I might have done wrong is that when I turned the harmonic balancer pulley to line up the timing marks I think I turned it counterclockwise, after I turned it I read on the internet that you shouldn`t turn it counter clockwise because of something to do with the timing chain.
Absolutely ...if its a used engine then the wear in the belt or chain has a slackness .That would throw your rotor button off to the original mark . You are or should start from scratch with the piston tdc on compression stroke with the timing mark on the harmonic balancer . Then turn the drive pinion for the distributor until your rotor hits the orginal mark . I think ...its been years and they were older engines .
