The lifters should pump up on their own, it just might take a while. Are you having a lot of valve train noise?
If it ran fine before you took it apart, and now it doesn't, obviously my first thought is you made some mistake. Go over everything you did and start at the basics.

try compression check with the carb slides and and butterflies open. you may just find BOTH problems. a vacuum test will give clues too, but since you have limited data, just pull the slides and hold the throttle fully open and run a compressio tes again. make sure battery is fully charged between each cylinder test.

No need to pull the slides.

Hi
There are not any valve train noise.
What are the consequences with to litle ore to many shims on the hydraulic lifters??? I have checked the measurement and all lifters are under minimum.
