Does not start after timing belt and seal replacements.

Replaced cam and crank seals along with timing belt and valve cover gaskets. I have pretty much quadruple checked the mark alignments and everything is spot on. Turns over but kinda sounds like a sputter. Crank timing teeth are not broken. Not really sure what else there is to do except to check for spark, fuel and compression. Smells like there's fuel getting to it. Just scared that I could have possibly bent a valve. Can the compression test confirm whether or not I have bent one? Also feel free to share your thoughts or experiences. Thanks.

If it ran before. You may have the marks off. Or did all the power cables get hooked up again. If all that. Then check the compression.
