He did but he doesn't want to have to take everything off again he followed by the book it all lined up.

He took it all apart the fist time because it wouldn't start this time it almost started but nothing. Could it be something else? He followed it by the book. Thank you.

Could it be a sensor? Could this be why it doesn't start? It makes a cranking sound and the truck is getting sparked. We even tried starting fluid but it won't start that way either

IF it doesnt start with starting fluid and there is spark, check the intake for leaks, or make sure the spark isnt cut off. recheck the timing aswell.
