What do you mean by "threw timming belt" ???

Did the belt break or slip/lose a few teeth??? If so, then in all probability you had valve-piston contact, and the cylinder head needs to be removed and overhauled, rebuilt, or replaced. Then you'll need a new head gasket, head bolts, and a complete timing belt kit (belt(s), tensioner, 3 idlers, water pump, and at least 5 so-called "stretch" bolts)... The procedure for replacing the timing belt system is here in the 1000q section...

There's a fellow in Lockwood, MO - Frank Irving - who's becoming almost a legend for his abilities to recondition cylinder heads, and folks from all over North America ship their damaged heads for him to work his magic on them... If you need contact info, just ask...

Good luck,

Yuri
