H23A1 Not running with out foot on pedal??? please help

Ok I have a 93 prelude with the H23A1 non-vtec in it and I am having some problems. I'm worried that I might have bent some valves but don't know yet. When I bought it pulley bolt had backed out and the car still ran it ran when I bought it until tried to take home. Once got it home and looked the key stop that goes on the crank between the crank pulley balancer pulley and timing pulley had backed out. I set cams back to tdc and rotated engine around till tdc on compression stroke and then put timing belt back on and balancer pulley. I made my own key stop which holds great but when started car it won't run with out my foot on the gas a little and never gets above about 600 rpms with that and is extremely rough. So I reset timing again and made sure distributor was set at number one plug wire and reinstalled and tried again and still the same. I am worried that might have bent a valve or valves but removed spark plugs and all are dry and in good shape none seem to have any oil like blown rings or a hole in a piston. Is there an easy answer, like someone giving me another way with out pulling every thing off and checking valves or if some one knows that I have let me know so I can go on with the build just wanted to have running while got parts for the build. this is killing me so any input and help would be awesome thanks to all that do help

do a compression test to see if you bent any valves.
