KSF250 Timing

Hi all, I replaced the head and cams on my KSF250 with a used set and having issues with timing and compression and starting. Lets start with timing.

Which is the timing mark on the Magneto? Is it the "T"? or is it the notch to the left of the T?

If everything is apart do i still have to worry about the compression stroke? If yes, How do I find it if everything is already off?

After assembling everything I performed a compression test and it goes BLOOP through the exhaust and i get no more than 30lbs. I performed a leakdown test with a compressor set to 60lbs and it holds compression at TDC. I'm thinking KACR. True? or maybe I'm timed 180deg. off?

Thanks in advance
