The engine runs. But the timing is off and you can also feel that as you drive it too?
You turn the distributor and it doesn't seem to go far enough, correct?
You tried very hard to line up the crank and the camshaft marks but I suspect you are off a cog on the timing belt. With #1 plug out, insert a long screwdriver. Turn the engine over slowly by hand until the screwdriver is at the highest point. That is top dead center on the piston. The camshaft lines should be parallel to the top of the head.
