I'm not sure what you mean by a "mountain" belt but yes, if the cam shaft is broken, you'll either need a new engine or a replacement camshaft installed. Either way, a huge hassle.

I have a 87 ford tmpo thatt wont start. i have spark and fuel. the water pump belt broke and my son could not get it started ever since. the compression on the plugs is low at 35psi i am trying to...


That has a timing chain not a timing belt.

I am betting that the vehicle was severely overheated when the water pump belt broke causing the loss of compression. If you pull the valve cover and the camshaft is moving than the timing chain is not the problem. It would be highly unlikely for a timing chain to slip and/or keep turning the cam if it did slip.

It is almost impossible to do the timing chain cover with the motor in the car. You will need to remove the sway bar mounts from the sub frame and the bracket that protects the fuel pressure regulator. You will than be able to get the motor low enough to remove the crank pulley.

PT Cruiser Timing chain and water pump problems removing


It's a pain to get out I just did mine belt and water pump it took about 3 times as long as I thought.
Make sure all the bolts are loose, make sure you have removed the tranmission mount as it gives you more room to move the engine. It's suggest you take the exhaust off as well as you can damage it if you jack the engine up too high. Lossen the bolts on the motor mount across from that plate, you will not be able to remove the motor mount but you can spin it allowing you to get that big plate out.

PM dhirst on ptcrew.com if you want some pics or more instructions.
