Sounds if the belt was installed correctly and your timing if off..dould check your work

I have taken the head to the engineers and they redone the head so im not sure what is happening? :-(

I'm not a mechanic so the mechanic i have says that the oil pressure is not right could this be true? he turned a nut loose just under the injector rail and said it must stand for 48 hours and then be tightened again.

I'm telling you that you are 1 tooth out on the lower sprocket, check the timing belt again....
