Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Put new belt on and try to start, If runs rough afterward run compression test to determine which cylinders have bent valves.

Depends on the answers you give :
If you were driving down the road when it broke I would say there is a 60 % chance of dammage to valve train
but if It broke durring or just after starting there is only a 10 % chance of dammage
replace belt observe all time marks ( Im assuming this is a 2.3L ) because 3.0 L dont use belts there gears
obtain a cyl pressure gauge (about 20 bucks off the internet) screw into spark plugs holes
one at a time
rotate engine slowly by hand (with large wrench on crank pully)
you should have a equall pressure +/- 5 psi in all cyl
if not find the odd cyl out (lower pressure) remove valve cover remove saddle rocker for that cyl only
(it's a bit tricky but if carefull you don't allways have to remove cam maybe only loosten it a bit as a last resort)
try again pressure come back Yes/no
if no yep you got a bent one and your gonna need to remove the head for that
if yes reaasemble saddle rocker reset static valve lash to factory specks (ck them all)
other than doing the work for ya thats all I can think of
