Was the pin in the injection pump when you put the belt back on? Or was 
the cable pulled when you set the timing?

This sounds very familiar to a time when I changed the head gasket on my 
former Quantum TD. Wouldn' start or run unless the cable was pulled... 
ran like crap with tons of white smoke.

Timing was off by some 45*.
