Post adjust timing 5 degrees? 220d wont start..

pretty big overhaul on this om615 and now I cant get it to start. is emitting exhaust out of intake manifold when cranking, timing is about 5 degrees ATDC when camshaft marks are aligned. Fuel seems to be getting out of the tailpipe so I think all other systems are good, how do I adjust the timing so little? Or do you think it is a different problem? thanks

Ummm, you set the fuel timing at 24 BTDC using the "drip" method. There is a mark (or was) on the dampener indicating the stock position.

i wonder if the front damper on crankshaft is 180 out , remove valve cover , put engine at tdc of number 1 cyl , push by hand a valve on numb 1 cyl , it should go down a small amount and hit the top of piston , if it goes all away down , you are 180 out .
