That's all normal, you removed the head and saw the piston going up and down.

This may seem very lame..However I and my roommate thought of a theory..Could my clutch arm be in or out to much and thus the motor is stuck in neutral sorta a speak?? The clutch can be slipping, but if you have the whole works together and pedal it and when you let out the clutch, the engine turns over making an engine sound but doesn't fire up, then the clutch is not slipping.
Have you ever run this engine?
