Update on the damage. I thought about this a bit more. I was thinking there has to be a reason for the belt failure but the cam and crank still turn freely. Maybe there was a cam bearing that locked up and spun and is now stuck to the cam. I was correct. Cam bearing number 4 from the front is locked onto the cam. I found out by trying to remove the cam. It came out less than the first bearing worth of length and then stopped. I looked down the lifter bores at the journals and there it was an oil hole on one of the journals. Obviously the bearing was on the journal and not in the block. Not sure if the block is junk. I have to tear it down and see.
