I changed the head gaskets and timing belt in my 1999 Land

Customer Question

I changed the head gaskets and timing belt in my 1999 Land Cruiser; now the engine will not start. Cam timing at the straight lines and crank at 0. All connections connected.

I'd suggest doing a compression test across all cylinders as they should be all be within 10-15psi of each other

this will show if any of the valves have been damaged and also show if the cam timing is out as a couple of low cylinders can be be down due to a cam tooth being out

Should the crank be set at 0***@******.*** 50 degrees to the right?
