Is the engine running on all eight cylinders?? It is easy to get the right camshaft 180deg out of time. The woodruf key must be aligned with the notched groove in the "washer" that goes on before the timing gear. Did you remove the engine to do the job? If so did you have the flywheel off? The flywheel MUST be aligned properly or the timing will be off by 40deg.
