From my reading Neo Brothers seemed to have the best price on the proper cambelt kit, but they were out of stock when I looked.

Try saabits.com - it's run by an ex enthusiast

I would have expected some instructions to be with the timing belt kit, even if they would only be read after the job is nearly done  :)

This may help though

Hmm, diesels are not my strong point.

Two thoughts:

Injection pump timing - make sure that the TDC timing is TDC on the compression stroke, rather than the exhaust stroke (two crank rotations per firing cycle)
Bleeding of the fuel system - on older diesel pumps they sometimes had to be hand primed. Check your drivers manual to see what the procedure is as if you had run out of fuel.

I'm currently messing with a 2.2 Tid, getting a stuck glow plug out. I may need to find out this soon as well.

Try and keep everything in one thread:

On the throttle body: I would not expect that you need to recalibrate it

When trying to start the car, it should start without using the throttle - air will go via the idle circuit, so throttle will be closed.

Old diesel trick just remembered. Crack each of the injector pipes off , crank the engine until diesel can be seen leaking from the connection, then tighten that injector, then the next three in turn as fuel appears at each injector

Remember this engine is used in lots of other cars, so you may get information elsewhere, this Vauxhall thread would seem to be useful.

Did you try this ?

Should be self bleeding, but the old method is still used as well. Check your handbook, self bleeding is done by just switching ignition to on position and leaving it for 15 seconds or so, do this a few times, you should hear the pump
