Does the motor even turn by hand?

Engine does turn over with starter. Does not fire. Fuel? Timing chain?

Once again, does it turn by hand? Trying to determine if the engine has seized

Roy

Yes It turns by hand

The fact that it shut off at 70 indicates loss of fuel pressure or spark. You say it wont crank? Is the battery fully charged?

Roy

My mistake. I fully sharged the battery and it does crank but does not fire

Check fuel pressure and spark

Roy

My mechanic says timing chain. Is that fixable or are valves and pistons possibly damaged
