Replaced head gasket now wont start

So today i finished my head gasket i started it and it ran very rough almost like timeing was off shut it off started again same thing i checked spark plug wires they all were on right plugs Tryed to start again and nothing wont start checked spark its good compression is 90 ( battery was going dead and couldn't crank anymore so probably would go higher)
Iam going to remove valve cover and check rocker arm torque next
Any input/ tips will be nice thanks
