Your cam timing is off. The horizontal cam gear marks don't line up horizontal with the head, the third timing mark needs to be in line with the pointer on the cover. I've brightened your image and highlighted. I just had this issue, first time timing a D16a6. You need the UP arrows facing up and the pointer on the cover facing this line:

Also maybe i missed it, but are you running the factory dizzy? Aftermarket dizzies are notorious for not being able to be pulled into spec within their adjustment.
