It sounds like the engine has lost timing like the timing chain has jumped. Here is a guide to help you check the timing chain.

Here is a guide and the timing chain diagram below so you can see whats going on.

Yep the timing chain was gone! I replaced it but the engine had bent valves so I junked it, thanks for your help though.
