3800 swap


start with the no compression, verify crank/pistons and cam/valves are moving while cranking and see if it's in time, id rec a leakdown test compression tests only tell you part of the story.

What steps did you take to determine you actually had no fuel, spark, or compression?

No fuel, no spark, no compression, almost seems like timing chain is not doing it's job IMO, depending if its interference or not.
