Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression
No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)
Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

Testimonial: "thanx for your help with this matter i have all but exhausted every other option to apoint to which im almost bald"
If it's a 6 or its a V-8 it does not matter as long as you start from the center and work your way out to both ends I will do it by numbers using an example of 10 bolts like this do this on both heads and follow the same pattern for the intake system. also go from slightly tight just touching 5 pounds then re due it at 20 pounds then again at 40 pounds then 60 and finally to the exact tork setting using a maker double check the bolts one by one and mark with ink so you know that one is done on the last tork setting give it just a slight click past the exact tork.hope this heps.
