If you didn't mess with the DS T-belt, bring the 3 lines on the flywheel back around so you're on the center one. These lines are seperate from the ignition timing marks and look like l l l .
Check position of the DS cam gear. It should either be at 12 or 6 o'clock. You need to set the PS cam gear 180* opposite of the DS cam gear.
If you messed with the disty, you'll need to re-time it. This is where you set it to TDC on #1, and check to see if rotor is pointing towards the #1 tower on the cap.

You do NOT use TDC for setting timing belts. You need to use the three closely spaced, scribed lines on the flywheel/driveplate.
The left and right cams need to be phased 180degrees apart: When one cam sprocket has its timing mark pointing up the other cam sprocket should have its mark pointing down. Rotating the crankshaft one full revolution should reverse which is pointing up and which is pointing down.
The engine is a non-interference design: You can rotate the cam or the crankshaft and not worry about bending valves.
