Was the engine taken apart recently, and hasn’t ran since?

yes when I bought it from the previous owner it was a rebuilt title and he put a new motor in it and did everything but couldn’t get it started and said it was the timing needed to be corrected.

There's an illustration in the Service Manual. It's even on Page 6-12 of the manual commonly on line with the Japanese bikini model on the cover.

Using a wrench or some kind of special tool? Should I take out the spark plugs when I do this? Just wanna make sure the installation is done right. Also how would I test it to make sure its right besides trying to start it up? Thanks for the help

19mm socket on the crank pulley and turn it clockwise, you don't need to remove the spark plugs but its much easier to turn the engine with them removed.
