I replaced intake gaskets and car will not start - no compression.

I double checked push rod placement and it is correct.

Why won't the car start.

What engine? If a 3.1 Orange push rods should be on intake valves Blue on exaust. Rocker arm bolt should be tightened 124 inch lbs or 14Nm then an additional 30 degrees. Check to see if studs ahave stripped out of cyl head.
