I put it all back together and I think Its wrong!!!!

HElp I dont know what I did wrong I just put the head back on the passagener side of my 97 7.3 and tryed to start and it wont turn over at all or so I think. Did I put one of those lifter poles in wrong? I may have just destroyed my engin I dont know please any info Id love. Im pretty scared that I did somthing majorly wrong here.

lets start from scratch.....are you trying to start it with the starter or roll it over by hand?? did you try to roll it over by hand first??

Did it turn over at all?? give more info about what is actually going on...

ok I havnt done anything by hand. only starter. I read a old post about trying to turn it over with all the injector wires diconected to insure no oil in the pistions Tryed that nothing really happened so I hooked the wires back up and tried. Just kinda moved the truck alittle but didnt feel like it turned over.So I turn the key and just kinda hear a click.

try to roll it over by hand. It will be tight, you will need a decent bar, but lets find out if its a problem with the motor, or a starter/battery issue...

the bolt on the crankshaft pulley, i dont remember if its 18mm, 21mm(13/16) or 24mm(15/16) though....you will need a short extention as well....

when i said bar, i meant breaker bar or large wratchet....

something else i want you to try, is if it wont roll over clockwise when looking at it towards the front (just like your trying to tighten the crank bolt), try going back a little. see if it is bound in a spot, or just locked up totally....this is only if it wont roll over. Honestly, it sounds like a possible wiring issue to me (fingers are crossed) as usually there is a pretty big bang if the motor itself is locked up...not just a starter clank hitting the flexplate...
