[COLOR="Blue"]If it has enough compression to where you feel it when kicking it through(auto de-compression ?) I can't believe it's a valve adjustment issue.....They might need adjustment but that shouldn't keep it from starting.....Especially since it ran good before the top end job...Check the ignition timing (Spark) and see if the plug is "WET" the answers to these checks should get you running...[/COLOR]
