Default 01 will turn over but not start

Hey ya'll.. I have an 2001 Automatic cruiser.. about 3 weeks ago it broke the timing belt.. we replaced it, had the head and valves done as a precaution. The other night I was making a right hand turn, and it shut off.. no spit or sputter.. just shut off like someone turned the key off.. it will turn over and try to start but won't fire.. you can smell fuel, like its flooded.. we replaced the coil pack, but no luck.. the timing belt isn't broken.. and no codes show up.. it reads "done" on the self test.. any suggestions??

Did someone maybe botch the t-belt job you think? It doesn't have to be broken just jumped a few teeth. It's very possible someone didn't tighten the cam sprocket bolt and it sheared the pin off.
