Fresh top end...wont start

Ok, just finished a rebuild.

Here are the problems so far.

Compression w/ decomp: 0psi

Compression w/o decomp: 150psi

Wont start. Spark is good. Fuel is flowing.

First question, is it possible to put the cam in, upside down? When you line up the "-" and the "EX-" and get the chain over it (no problems here and yes its dead on at TDC) is there an up or down that the cam lobes should go in? I didnt think it should matter but maybe I'm wrong.

edit: I installed with the marks dead even with the top of the head and the lobes facing down for compression stroke.

Where else to look?

Thanks her running like a champ now.

Yeah, what what was the problem? If you share it here, it might help someone else in the same situation later.

Oh sorry missed responding to this.

I had also rejetted the carb and during the process the idle adjust was off.

1/2 turn in and she starts hot or cold one light kick every time.
