need to know about the timing belt spects

97 escort 2.0 sohc..replaced the water pump,installed new timing belt, and found the tensioner was bad, allowing engine to jump time. I went through and put on tdc, aligned the marks and yet still no fire. I think the cam and the crank are 180 off from each other. Is there away I can assure that I am on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke, since both will push compression.

1997 Ford Escort LX sedan has a vibration/humming/pulsating coming from the driver's side front wheel that has gradually been worsening for probably the last 20,000 miles.
