Ok guys I think I really screwed up.
I put a new timing belt on this week and when I finished it fired right up....ran for about one minute and then made a weird whining noise and then abruptly shut off.
I took it back apart and the passenger side cam sproket had broken off the cam and was spinning free.
The left cam and crank were all still in time
What did I do wrong ? Can I just replace the passenger side camshaft ?
Yes you can remove timing belt, cam sprocket, rockers
