Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
Not starting after head change
Was the pump timing Mark linger up as well ? Usually if you align the crank , cam , and fuel pump you don't ususlly have a drama, since you didn't check the pump I would say it would have sprung back on the cam and springs inside the pump and would be out a few teeth, you will need to recheck the timing, you may also need to re time the pump as well, I'm assuming it a VE pump! If you don't check you will probably won't start or will run very rough, hope this helps

Belt covers need to be on. Timing mark on crankshaft (while on compression stroke) should line up with TDC mark on cover. then Camshaft mark, needs to line up by looking through access hole of cover, and align mark on cam sprocket with pointer on inside of belt cover.
