      Ok so so maybe I'm being a little naive here but I'm hoping that maybe my head is fine, what's the likely hood of this?
      THat said, I've pulled the belt which was not completely broken but it was quite torn up and I'm quite certain the cam's were out of sync. However, I'm able to turn them with no nasty sounds or grindy/crunchy noises coming from the motor internally.
      Here's a few pics of things, a couple showing where the cam's were before I aligned them "I think" ( that's actually something else I need to verify somehow, how do I know where to have those cam's and when I'm at TDC?)
      In the one pic labled cams aligned I've also got the crank aligned with the timing mark on the crank and the block. I'd love to just slap on a new timing belt and be done with it any chance that's an option?

      I bet you will find valves bent open when you remove the head, and you canít tell by rotating the cams.

      mine failed at idle and had 9 bent valves.

      Just a quick additional update here. I just picked up the head from the machine shop that I took it to and good news bad news good news is there was actually no band valves so the head was perfectly fine but sadly that's also the bad news because that means I did all this work for pretty much nothing at it cost me $500 versus an $80 belt
