Sounds like you wiped the teeth off the belt. You're right, the main cog is keyed and bolted tight with the crankshaft pulley, not likely it's spinning free. But how did it wipe the teeth? When is the last time you changed the belt? Is the head seized?

You're not supposed to turn the cam too much, as you know it could be bad.

I'd put a new belt on and see what happens. It's pretty easy on that motor.

FYI - A hard lesson to learn this way, but ALWAYS change the timing belt on an old car you buy unless you're sure about how old it is. When I bought mine two years ago, I questioned the former owner repeatedly about the belt. Just changed it a couple weeks ago.
