Should be no reason why it wouldnt start after waterpump change.
Have you checked for spark
All i can think is the ign amp has gone or the coil and its just coincidence its happened.
Can you here the fuel pump with ignition on

shouldn't have to touch the cam belt when changing the mk2 water pump, but as lemski said "could just be a coincidence". could be something unrelated.
