When I inquired about what did you do I was referring to what mechanical work. Did you do any work with the cams etc.? There is more going on here that I need to know before offering any hopefully useful suggestions.

It should be a non interference engine,
when you went to set everything did you confirm that #1 piston was on the top of it's compression stroke? If not start all over and you must confirm #1 IS AT THE TOP OF COMPRESSION STROKE, otherwise the timing mark will appear at TDC, but a different cyl will be at the top of comp stroke. (Sounds like timing could be 180 degrees off)
