I have just taken the camshaft cover off of the engine. I have accompanied this message with photos of the engine. The timing chain is completely broken off. The camshaft itself is in three pieces broken between the first and second cam bearings. The chain tensioner, tensioner guide rail and the lower guide rails are also broken. The Connecting rod, which holds the camshaft is also broken from this picture without doing the leakdown test, does there appear to be any damage to the engine itself. I will perform the cylinder leakdown test probably tomorrow when I go by Grainger or Northern and get an adapter for the air hose. I have much larger pctures if anyone needs a better look
