you can never get lucky if the belt broke, not just skipped three teeth. Even at idle. skip all the testing and just make a decision on if you want to do the job of removing the head and replacing at least 8 valves. you would have to do it as not worth paying for it along with risk they'll do it wrong. You can do it wrong too, but thats a learning experience instead of a rip off.
OK fair enough, I know all about paying for an "education" ... What is a ballpark parts cost to diy the job including head work assuming it needs 8 valves as you say.

I plan to at least yank the cam cover and do a leakdown and comp test as wisely suggested by Rick hale .. Proof is in the puddn' and unfortunately so may be reality!

.
Special tool kit.

Head removal process in attached file.

Because you got the crankshaft and cams out of wack. You may need to modify the process. The file should give you the essentials.

It is possible to get the cam cover off without the special tools and without warping the cam cover.

Study the file then ask questions.

I'm going to remove the cam cover ASAP so I can assess the damage. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I've never done one of these before. I searched this site and google'd and didnt find any good instructions or a write-up on that part of the job. THANKS

I'm guessing a potential water pump failure which took the belt with it. The pump belt and tensioner were replaced 50k miles ago.
Have you determined yet if it was the water pump that broke? If it's the water pump please tell us what brand only lasted 50k miles.
