Default New head gasket, now crank and new start...

First post....I have found some good advice on this site in the past, so I thought I would join.

The PT was running before teardown. After a low compression test on 3 and 4 and exhaust in the coolant, it was time for a new head gasket. The head gasket was installed after having the head resurfaced. Reinstalled everything according to the manual and now it is cranking but won't start. Getting new codes PO129 - low barometric pressure, PO340 - Cam sensor, PO335 - Crank sensor and PO122 - Throttle Position Sensor. Timing was double checked and it is spot on. Pulled the spark plug from cylinder 1 and there is no spark...

I'm just looking for some advice on where to go from here. Could these 4 new codes be related to the same issue? I am planning on inspecting all the wires for these sensors tomorrow.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

Thanks

The Cam Sensor & Ignition Coil plugs are the same...some users in the past have switched them by mistake...try swapping them.
