Question Timing belt question

Greetings fellow Cruisers!
OK, so the T belt in my 05 quit on the highway @ 70mph, I coasted off the roadway and like a dummy I cranked the engine over,..........nothing.

So it's home in my shop and the engine is out and on the stand. I removed the valve cover and the timing belt cover and pulled out the old belt,....a clean break.

I set the engine up at TDC on #1, made sure the cams were turned so the valves were in the closed position and put air to the cylinder, about 100 psi.

There is a small bit of air coming out of the intake port and a lot out of the exaust port. I repeated the process for 2,3 and 4 and got basically the same results except on 3 where the leakage is on the intake side.

Bent or burned or both ??????

I also got a rattle noise when I plugged the air into 3 and 4. What could that be ??
It's my first Cruiser engine repair. Thanks for any help.

You need a need timing belt, water pump and tensioner pulleys.

doing a compression check without a belt doesn't provide useful information

well im not the expert BUT if you got it out of the car already you did not say how many miles but the out of the car would make a new head gasket a whole lot easier to do and from what I hear its not all that expensive
