Hi all
So I had the dreaded water pump failure cambelt snapped issue
Stripped it and found 6 damaged rockers
Replaced all 18 plus new cam cover gasket belts tensioner water pump etc
Now the car won't start
I used both timing tools on the cam then removed the rear one and had the one on the crank.
All the lines in the new belt lined up with the pulley marks
I've got a lot of pressure leaking through one of the injectors which obviously will need a new seal.
Looks like oil coming from it which I think/hope is just sooted up diesel deposits
Would of thought it would still fire though albeit not run very well
Anything I could of missed/ got wrong?
Thanks in advance

No I did check the valve height and they were all sitting at the same height. I figured that wouldn't be the case if any were bent.
Can you do a compression test before the cam cover goes back on?
Was thinking that after checking the timing a compression test should be the next step
Are there any timing marks to go by or jus need to use the locking tools?
