Check if it is correctly seated and torqued to specs.

Yes, I already checked the seat and torque. Set valve already but same problem. When I replace new water pump and timing belt, I forgot the timing mark, then I crank it 3 times. Then I check again the mark wrong 3 teeth. But why pulley camshaft not stable?

If the camshaft is wavy, it definitely is not seated correctly. There could be something stuck behind between the pully and camshaft.

If there is abnormal noise and the compresion has dropped. Check the valve clearnances. If they are excessive, you would need to remove the head to replace the valves as they are damaged by the wrong timing belt installation.

A minor wavy movement is normal but if it is too much, the sprocket could be bent and requires replacement.

For the valve noise, have the valve clearances checked/adjusted, unless it is hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) which requires them to be serviced/replaced. Our database does not have any information on the engine so I do not know if it is HLA.

Stable compression indicates the valves should not have been damaged by the skipped timing belt installation, unless they are lower than specifications.
