Did you turn engine over by hand a few times and recheck alignment? Sometimes you think you got it but due to the tenisioner and how belt was routed they get off a few teeth and she don't have no get up. Also did you check to see if any valves may have been bent can.T recall if this is an interference engine ore not. Let us know
