    Hi
    Done some work on my tdi now it will not start.
    fires up with easy start so i know the work i done is ok.
    It had a pump fitted just befor i changed the rocker arms.
    Now it will not fire on its own fuel.
    The only thing i have not done is the alternator belt cos i
    am waiting from ebay.
    thank you.

    Cant see why the alternator would affect anything. The battery is still there supplying power.

    Have you checked for fault codes?
