When checking to make sure I was at TDC, I just stuck a wooden shish kabob stick in the spark plug hole, worked for me...

This will tell you are TDC, but not which TDC, that must be determined by checking which position the cam is at............

Thought Id add a tip to this to tighten the valve or loosen. Get a sheet rock screw. the philips head screw is a perfect fit on the square head.

Here's a Vid you can fast forward to 5:55 in the video to get to that point.

I recently purchased a 660 from a friend. It had no spark I took it to the job and the mechanic got spark to it..the next day I changed the oil cleaned the tank and the carbs. After sitting for about a year and a half I got it started first try.. It started running rough. I got it into 2nd gear then it just died and wouldn't start back up all it would do is have loud backfires and nothing else what could this be?

Carbs may be still dirty. Petcock may be plugged. Check for fuel delivery and spark. Make sure the carbs are fully seated in the boots.
