If you cant feel any resistance at all in the pull-string during the compression stroke than you may not have a proper seal between the head and crank case; make sure all the cooling head screws are tight.
To check to make sure the engine is turning during the pull, take the glow plug out and peek into the hole while you pull.

Check the O-Ring around where the gas lid is..
You lift up the gas lid and theres an orange-ish O-Ring..
