well for anyone wondering, if it isnt one problem its another, fixed the timing issue and the crank bolt somehow crossthreaded itself on its way out despite me threading it in by hand... Now the bolt is seriously bent... my luck... what do do I even do from here man :/
That is how it looks from that pic for sure.

If the crank threads are ok, you need a new bolt.
if the crank threads are trashed, you need a new crank and bolt. Unless you can fix the crank threads which you may be able to if you have a lathe?
Sorry to hear this, i have not stripped crank threads before. But someone must have done this before maybe they will have some better advice.
