Ya the intake cam on the driver side seized up long enough for the timing to be out 180 with the belt jumping on the gear... chewed up the cam and the pin by the bolt that hold the gear has lots of play.. new engine on the way since I had warranty on this one from putting it in last December and this will be the cheaper route
Piccies if you got them, please. ;)

Although you have some galling on the rear cap, what did any of the other bearing caps look like? Any piccies of the front of the cam where the pin is/was located? I don't think the cap that you have showing would be enough to cause the camshaft to break that front pin. Something else is in play here. ;)

From the first piccie, I'm not seeing any signs or evidence that there was any sludge build up at all. I'm thinking lack of oil lubrication which could have been a low oil level condition. ;)
