Update on my 5kCSQW

... well, the wagon's now in the garage ...

I pulled the timing belt cover, and found that the timing belt is indeed
broken.  The crnak, cam, water pump and idler pulleys all appear to turn
easily, so I don't think anything froze.  There are a couple of scribe
marks on the back of the belt as if something was rubbing or cutting
into it ... AFAIK the only thing that contacts the back of the belt is
the idler pulley, so there's still a bit of a mystery.  I'll check in
the space below the crank pulley to see if perhaps some piece of crap
got caught in there and caused the damage to the belt ...

I'll be starting the head pulling process tonight ...
