Going through the same thing as well, waiting for gasket to put the head back on.
This forum has been great. It looks like my tensioner was adjusted too tight. Belt broke here I am 6 lifters and a few valves later.
Happy to say that has a successful engine start and is idling just great, seems to be back to normal have a small exhaust leak will check gaskets and make sure manifold is tight; other than that, timing belt was a breeze using free tools, drill bit for injection pump, piece of metal for cam lock, fork with modified teeth for adjuster. they all worked fine. But the biggest resource was this forum they are dead on and are priceless......Thanks
