I recently installed a new water pump and timing belt on my 93 ford probe is it possible i could have the watet pump turning the way

Very Doubtful. As the belt routing is limited to the space in the cover for the timing belt. And there is not much chance to get it wrong. It is POSSIBLE. but not too.

Just bought 1991 Ford Probe lx v6 won't start

If you have spark and fuel (either via the injectors or spraying fluid into the intake), and still no evidence of firing, it suggests your valvetrain may not be working. If the valves can't open, the fuel cant get into the cylinder.

Do (or have done) a compression test. You may have a broken timing belt/chain.
