good idea with the bump start, maby a bit of dirt on the tdc worth testing or cleaning. engine turning over too fast is normally if not always compression, i know you said you checked but if all else fails id check again. tj

or you could try hand crank it over a few times. Remove all the plugs and crank it over by hand a few more times. How much easier was it with the plugs out?
