To make sure you have leads on right.

sitting in car on your left is 1,3,5,7
on your right 2,4,6,8

Have you checked coil pack is plugged back in and bracket secure
As you have cranked engine loads best oremove plugs and clean.
Check fuses.
Can you hear fuel pump turn on when you turn key to position 2
Maf sensor connected
so many things to choose from but so little time......

What did you use for a guide in doing the head gasket replacement job? How long did it take you from start to finish? I'm contemplating doing it.

Thanks in advance. Glad you got her started again.

for a thourough job a week. depending as you strip you may find lifters are no good, then comes the cam and so on
If high mileage alot of your time will be preparing and cleaning out rocker covers, intake and lots of other little items
I've done a few and there's only one way and its the right way, use delphi lifters, Victor Reinz or El ring head gaskets
possibly replace injector O rings on tip side, they get hard and shrink, new composite valley gasket and end rubbers along
with NEW HEAD bolts (dont skimp on these) a good knowledge and variety of hand tools and of course the RAVE workshop manual. Pay attention to all the sequences of tightening head bolts and inlet manifold, important

When sending in heads to engineering company use one that does these heads regularly as there are a few fussy specs like
valve stem length heights etc, and do exhaust valve guides as a standard, valve stem seals on ALL guides, a bugger to do in the car and not helpful if unfit or abit on the large oval side and dont do this sort of work for a living, fender gaurds a must and a positve approach will help to.

Last important tip, when repalcing lifters there is a special way to bed in new lifters along with a lube
Enjoy
