Default Cam belt and engine damage.

I have recently done my cam belt and did the job myself. I forgot to tighten the crank pulley bolt and the belt had no guide and subsequently jumped off with a bang. After stripping the head i found rokkers broken and decided to do the complete head.
Valves were refaced and new ones fitted where it was knoked by the piston.
Rockers were replaced and properly oiled before fitment. I then phoned the local supplier and agent for the head torque sequence and torque settings but was unable to get it, the could not find it.
I did a search and found a repair manual and the torques. After all was assembled and belt fitted oil replaced filter done the engine would crank but will not start. i checked fuel pressures oil pressures and all the wiring. Again i contacted the agents with no assistance and all i got was to bring it in to check it on the computor, but how do i tow it there . so i started cheking for items that cost the least and decided to do the crank and cam sensors.
After this the engine fired up and was running smoothly. Before i did the cambelt the motor would at times swing but not start.
Since the replacement of the sensors it started every time.
Saved myself a lot of money and the head job was my own fault.
Hope this will help guys who want to do the job at home, luckily it is my trade but i am retired now.
