Water could have gotten on top of the pistons without getting in the oil if the rings have a tight seal.Also the engine was hot when it went into the water that was way cooler than the engine temp which would cause a lot of condensation inside the combustion chamber and that would cause the cylinder bore to rust and not allow the piston to work up and down the cylinder.

Rotor button in distributor dose not turn

your timing belt is broken, it is NOT an interference engine so it did not damage pistons or valves, but the front of the engine will need to be taken apart to install a new timing belt.

Timing out by half a tooth

if you use marks on the belt,try to revers or rotate t/belt untill marks lined up correctly with marks on sprockets.Use something like big binder clips to hold belt on camshaft sprockets(line them up first) , then go for crank.

1995 audi a6 water pump went and so did the timein belt is my motor gone?

If this is an interference type engine then yeas there is a real chance you could have major internal damage, such as a piston hitting a valve. If it is not an interference engine then there should be know issue other then a new belt, tensioner and water pump.
I hope this may have helped you,

Cant get no. 1 piston top dead center with the timing belt

Ive replaced the head gasket two times (two cars) with this engine, and had a little trouble with this. The mark on the intake camshaft that matches the mark where it connects to the distributer is tricky. The mark on the distributer connection is not supposed to match up square with the mark on the camshaft, if you do match them completely, then the teeth wont match up with the timing belt completely (#1 piston position) instead, the mark shows you which flat surface to allign if that makes since. The notch (dist side) is on a flat hex surface, it is not in the middle of the surface but it should be. as long as the two pieces hex sides are lined up, you should then be able to get good timing with the #1 position after turning the crankshaft to get the timing belt to line up. its hard to explain but all markings are right for the timing belt, but the distributer notch to line up the cams for timing is a little off. match the two surfaces (notch should me a few mm to the right of the other mark) Ive done this on 2 toyotas (87 celica and 89 camry) and they both work fine now. Hope this helps.
