I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, you dont want to force it as it sounds like the valves are hitting the pistons, or you have a bent valve. If the timing belt broke, then there is likely bent valves due to them hitting the pistons. If it didnt break, then you dont have the timing marks set properly and need to reset them

i am sure but the chain never broke i took it all down to change conecting rod bearings and forgot to mark the timing position now am putting it back up with the marks on the chain and the gears but it dont make a complete rev. i dont think my cams are in the right positin

i see the marks on the cam but not on the block

my tdc is up correctly and the cam is position on the bottom lob but it turns all the way anticlockwise but not clockwise

Ok, at this point to prevent damage to valves by forcing it, you will need to either remove the head and set the cam or loosen the rockers to give valves some play so that turning the cam will not bend the valves.
