>>>timing belt. pretty sure on these that the timing is Cam sprocket mark lined up with extrusion on pull start mount and the crank at the split on the port side ( 270 degrees if looking down from the pull start)

Don't know this engine but huge car related timing belt experience.

The fact you believe the belt was one tooth out by using marks you are "pretty sure" about rings alarm bells. You need to be absolutely sure.

Is this your engine and are the marks you are using those shown on page 60?

I've timed it exactly to spec in the manual. Belt on and off 5 times and now I am 100% sure its timed and lashed properly

Rule out the obvious. If the plug leads look crap then replace.

What actually happened with the Easystart?
IME of using it, albeit not on boat engines, if it tries to run then it's a fuelling problem & if it doesn't & timing/compression etc are OK then it's an ignition problem.
