Do your compression test to confirm your engine timing - (pull the F1 fuse, all plugs out, battery well charged, gas pedal floored while cranking). Your timing belt is done to cylinder #4 firing, using the E marks on the cam pulley (some pulleys have an I mark, which is for a different engine). The ignition timing is done to cylinder #1 firing. Car fires 1-3-4-2 and your rotor rotates clockwise.
Not sure what you mean by the car turning over, but not cranking??

So car cranks, but doesn't start. Ignition timing is based on the engine timing being correct. So it's a good idea for you to do your compression test. On a cold engine, you should have at least 150psi on all cylinders.
Often, there are two marks on the cam pulley - you need to make sure that you use the correct one (the E or 60 mark). The crank key will be at 12:00, the cam key at 6:00 and cam mark at 12:00 with cylinder #4 firing.
I can't tell about the 'marks' for your ignition as, although plug #1 will line up at about 11:00 on the distributor, with cylinder #1 firing, you need to confirm that you have your wires (firing 1-3-4-2) set up for the rotor to spin clockwise.

Not really good. I would pour a teaspoon of oil into the plug holes - particularly #3, and see if the compression rises. Presumably you had to gas pedal floored when you did the test, with all plugs out and a well charged battery?
And confirm that your dash lights go on and check engine light comes on with the key on, and that you can get a code 12 from it.
Check Engine Light
Also confirm that you have the distributor wires set up for firing 1-3-4-2 with the rotor rotating clockwise.
