HONDA ACCORD CRANKSHAFT PROBLEM

1994 Honda Accord • 140,000 miles

The 2 belts had came off due to the main crankshaft bolt holding on the crankshaft pulley. So I put the new belts back on still not aware that the pulley bolt was still loose. When I cranked it, it made a loud thumping kinda noise. Belts came off again, then I discovered the bolt being loose. So I tighten it, but now it wont crank, like it may not be getting fire. Could that bolt being loose make the timing belt break or come off? I wouldn't think so since the bolt shouldn't have any thing to do with the timing belt. What do you think?

Yes it could have moved the belt.

Can you crank it by hand?
