1990 XJ will not start

I pulled my 1990 XJ into the shop to change the water pump and now that im finished it will not crank? im new to jeeps and was wondering if anyone knew any common problems that could cause this... i have recently replaced the ignition system and fuel system so i do not think these are problems.. possibly the NSS will check that next but if anyone has any input it would be appreciated.. if not i will be getting out the chiltons to go through the wire schematics im almost sure its and electrical issue

Hm, I didn't have any trouble getting mine off at all. It's a really easy job once you do though just for some encouragement.

Mr. Madison, what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
