Default 6mo project still hasn't started

So I blew my stock 302 in Jan of this year, I put a 306 in it with twisted heads, lightning gt-40 intake, and an e303. I converted to mass air I can't get it to start for ****. It just cranks, I know it is getting gas because it barely started with SD setup, and the MAF computer works in my 89' GT. I am pretty sure what is left is my RR's must not be adjusted properly although I am pretty sure that I went over many times and checked how and learned how to do it. ANY HELP would be great. I got to either tow this car next weekend or get it running because of move.

Yeah I get spark, gas, and air. I can't see compression being a problem, I got the motor from a performance shop in texas (a brand new rebuild.) A question I had is will a e303 cam run on an SD setup, not great but just run...

the reason for doing the compression check is to see if how many, if any, of the rockers you over tightened. and dss is a well known performance shop and they make sh*tty motors so the fact that you bought a crate motor means nothing.

Good idea, I guess if the rocker were over tighten the valves perhaps would never close, therefore ****ty compression. You have any tips on RR's, I got stud mounted ones and I was certain that I had did it right. I am sure I used a different set of instructions, but links this as the instruction for the rockers I have which are crane studded energizers... The instructions are for pedestal. PLEASE HELP ANYONE.
