Ok so I just finished replacing a bhg and getting the head machined because it was a little warped. Everything is back together but the car wont start, it cranks but doesn't start. When they re did the head they had to take off the camshafts and gears/pulleys. I went online and followed the timing instructions according to my cars TSRM with no luck the car still doesn't start, and I just tested my spark plugs and they are getting spark. So my question is do the camshaft have to be installed in a certain way for the car to start or does the position of them not matter, and any other info you might be able to provide would be much appreciated.
Do you

You need to adjust your camshaft and crankshaft alignment-sounds like its off-

With the engine at TDC No1 check the cam timing, there are notches on the cam gears that align with marks on the tin cover behind the gears, if they are to far out you may have bent valve after turning the engine over, re set cam timing and do a comp check, check pic for timing marks.
