Mechanic Q: Replaced timing bet but none of the sprockets would move?

Does this mean there has already been contact of the valves and pistons and the engine is gone?

A: Replaced timing bet but none of the sprockets would move?

OK! Of course it means removing the timing belt! LOL I think I read that it should only be turned clockwise. Which I guess is the normal direction. I was afraid to try it and break something I appreciate your help

A: Replaced timing bet but none of the sprockets would move?

Hi The old timing belt had lost a section of teeth. When I took the old one off none of the 3 gears would move at all. The top two seemed to still be in line but the bottom one was off When it started to have trouble, I had just started it and heard a weird flapping sound, I opened the hood and couldn't tell where it was coming from. Then the engine quit and when I tried to start it the starter engaged but the engine wouldn't turn at all. Battery is fully charged. After installing the new belt the engine still would not turn at all.

A: What would make it seize up??

Hi I replaced the timing belt but all 3 sprockets were stuck and would not move at all. and the engine won't turn at all
