The engine will never crank fast enough to advance the timing, I think you misunderstood what we were saying about the initial advance , but it doesn't matter really. If it still cranks slow with a jump from a good battery and the COIL wire is removed it's not a timing issue. It's staring to sound more like a starter or cable/connection problem. Then again if it sat for a few years without being turned over it could possibly be semi frozen, rusted cylinder walls, gummed up oil etc. If you can tow it or push it and just let it free wheel without trying to start it may loosen it up some what
