MG 1500 MIdget Timing

Post by tx4crystal » Sat Aug 23, 2014 7:40 pm

I am puzzled about my car not starting. So, I replaced plugs, and checked timing with the flywheel at -10 TDC. When I pulled the distributor cap, I think the rotor is not even near the number 1 plug and I can't turn it enough to get close. Am I looking at this right? Is my timing chain off? I attached a photo to show it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
