Was the engine running before you replaced the timing belt??

Start by verifying the static engine timing... Philip

it was running fine then died on here running about 35, i have been overseas working and just now have time to work on it. The timing is spot on, could it have slammed a piston into the valves???

Perform a compression test and post the numbers...

All sparks out, Fuel/ignition cut, throttle wide open, crank until gauge peaks.... Philip

Instead of guessing, why don't we confirm the engine integrity first... Philip
