Worst case scenario, we were thinking that the cams could be timed 180 degrees out. As a check, if John got the number one cylinder in place for a valve adjustment at Z1 (number one intake and exhaust valves should be "loose"), then the number four cylinder exhaust and intake valves on the opposite side should be tight (on the passenger side)...right? If number four is "loose" at the same time number one is, would that indicate incorrect cam timing?

Also, seeing the tach jump all over the place during starting leads me to believe that it could be ignition related. After several continuous cranks, the engine begins to make a slight sputtering and small puffs of smoke emerge from the tail-pipe, but it just won't catch. I'm confident he's got fuel.
