yes as long as you have it on top dead center you are correct!!
check to make sure the valves are sealing properly!

the cams sound like they are right, as long as the T mark on the flywheel was up, you should be OK on timing. My bet is the replaced valve is might be too tight, and a thinner shim is needed. Check the valve clearance next.
