Greetings, When I put the rear cover on---the first time----I did not set the ignition drive shaft in the slot . I guess that I forced it and broke off the locking pin.
What is interesting is that the fit between the cylinder and shaft was so firm that the shaft rotated---sometimes. That is why it ran sometimes and refused at others.
I thank everyone for the help Lew

Could have been a lot worse Lew, the tuition for the class on the timing belts can get a lot more expensive.
