changed "everything"...you are startin' to scare me~ a few components like the distributor must be in the correct orientation..got the vacuum advance on there too...make sure the like is connected...actually prefer nitrile rubber like bmw uses because it will not surprise leak...Everything means the head gasket, the timing chain and presser foot...the timing case contains the oil pump~ if it isn't running cannot measure the oil pressure~ stops immediately like a bang or just quits? going with that something was not connected or was misadjusted...is a big job to change that headgasket (required with the new timing chain) and there are a number of systems to consider~ if you can get a compression tester to find out if the mechanic did a good job and got everything lined up...there are some indicators on the camshaft...this might be out of position...that would account...a lot of things would account for this behavior...all I can say is double check the marks and vacuum connections~ peace out~ Jayster (bob_nueske)~
