I replaced the water. Pump and. Timing belt on my car! I've set the crank pulley and the camshaft pulley in the correct positions and went to try and start it but nothing turns over but won't crank up. Redid it with the same results.

Do you
have the same problem?

What happened that caused you to change the belt in the first place?

Water pump went out so I figured while I'm in there I might as well replace it.

This is an interference engine and ANY rotation of the crankshaft while it is out of time can bend numerous valves. I would say your first step should be a complete compression test and/or leakdown test.

The only movement while it was out of time was by hand. Would that still affect the valves?

Yes it could. Do the compression test so we know if there is any mechanical issue or not.
