is the battery dead? did you hook all the ground wires back up? does it turn over at all? if it turns slowly, it can't be the neutral safety switch. if it does nothing, it might be the neutral safety switch.

Ign. timing? Valve timing? (timing chain gears aligned correctly) Valves adjusted way to tight? Dead battery? All possibilities..
