Pull the distributor cap and make sure that one, the rotor screw hasn't fallen out. And two, does the rotor turn when you crank the motor. If it doesn't, the timing belt is broken.

I'm sure you have found the 'ea82 timing belt procedure' by. now. If not, search it and knowledge will be yours. Don't forget about the videos as well. Good luck
