Default 2006 focus st not starting😡 help!

Hi guys, looking for some help regarding a my 2006 focus st. Bought it with a major head gasket fault, so couldn’t start it when I got it, thinking it was because the head gasket was that bad, so I stripped the engine out, skimmed the head as it was bent to hell, also skimmed the block, new gaskets, bolts, Cambelt, water pump, etc, all put back together, timed up correctly, it cranks over but does not fire, it does try but no joy😒 new plugs and decent coil packs installed, also tried a decent crank sensor, still no luck, any ST225 guru’s out there any advice would be awesome.

Thanks👍

Any fault codes logged?

Has it got compression?

Is it cranking over at a decent speed?

Fuel pressure good?

Fuel pressure good, it’s cranking fast enough, I must admit I haven’t done a compression test,
fault codes that I can see on dash are, D900, E510, A103, 9318, I think there’s another one I will check again tomorrow when I go back to my garage.

Need a code reader on it to get the P codes really, the dash generated codes aren't much use tbh.

Thought I’d give an update on the focus not starting, turned out to be the recirculating dump valve. I thought I’d remove it just to cancel it out, so I blanked it off and it fired right up. I’m assuming the valve is faulty. Any way all is good now👍
