Some things to check.
make sure the belts are turning when you crank the engine over.
I want to verify that the flexplate is not broken.
Then, if you are not familiar with the various sounds an engine makes when something bad happened inside, I want you to remove the fan belts and crank the engine.
With the belt off, nothing on the outside of the engine will be turning over, so you'll know that it's internal.
