Question about 1996 Jaguar Xj Series
I replaced the harmonic balancer with one off of a 2000 and now it wont start
Check the crankshaft position sensor, it's on a small bracket on the front of the Aj6 engine, you may have disturbed it or your new balancer may be a different diameter and the gap between the pulley and the sensor is incorrect or the 1996 sensor may have a different position to the 2000. This sensor controls the ignition timing.

SOURCE: 1996 xj6 jaguar wont start
Need to check for fuel and spark
You can crack the fuel line connector at the back of the rail on the drivers side to see if you are getting fuel or have someone listen in the trunk for a humming/buzzing sound when you first turn the ignition on, if you do hear this then the fuel pump is probably working so it would be the crank sensor that has failed. If you have 1/4 or less of a tank of gas, check to make sure you actually have gas as these cars have faulty fuel sendor units which will stick on a 1/4 of a tank.

SOURCE: engine turns over wont start
I take it your vehicle is fuel injected, if so you might need to run a diagnostic on your car to make sure there are no fault codes registering that might prevent the vehicle from starting.
