hey guys, thanks in advance for any input.

Here's the problem. I was on my way to work this morning and everything was running just fine. Then with the blink of an eye my truck died. No warning signs, nothing, just died. It turns over but it turns over like all of the spark plugs are out (like there's no compression, at all). The engine is rebuilt with only maybe 2000 km on it. I plastigaged everything, everything is new. Is there some freak chance that the timing chain skipped? it is new, new sprockets, new tensioner, new guides. I'm baffled, any input would be greatly appreciated.

yes it does, has fuel, has fire, has ground. I'm kinda leading towards timing. You see I bought a rebuild kit off of ebay. Although I ended up pretty much having to replace almost everything in the kit because it was crap, I did use the timing chain tensioner. Over the next day or so, I'm gonna get to the bottom of it.

Hope for the best, but plan for the worst

Well I got it towed home yesterday:ballsmack

Was going to start working on it, So to help ponder the situation I cracked a beer, But that didn't seem to do the trick so I went out back and [stoned]. Still didn't seem to give me the motivation I was looking for, so I cracked another beer. I popped the hood, finished a smoke and went inside and [1c]. And went to bed. We'll see what I can get done tonight:D

it's not that bad. I could pretty much have the motor out assembled and back in in one day, blindfolded. I have done a lot of work on these engines.

Check ur open curcuit relay under the dash I had that happen and I found that the relay stopped supplying the fuel pump with power so I re wired it and it's all good now

There has been some noise coming from behind my gauge cluster. My fuel pump is already wired to accesory power too. Where a-bouts is this said relay?

I have snapped two or More chains in my 22r.

Never bent a valve.

Also ran my 3.4 l with an intake valve stuck open. No problem.

The secret bolt is under the cam gear on most toyotas.

Oh I know the whereabouts of that bolt. A long time ago I saw a buddy fuck his head by not undoing it and actually prying his head of. I was telling him to "hey I think that's not right, I think you missed something"

the relay is located behind the right side of the glove box in the right kick panel above the computer

Well finally got to pulling apart the motor to find out what happened. There was 2 problems. Yes the tensioner died, actually there is a pinhole sized hole where the brass plug should go on the top. Because that collapsed it created enough vibration to shake the left side guide bolts out. And get this, the alignment dowel on the camshaft fell out. Which is good because since the cam wasn't held in place my valves didn't get bent. I got it set back to tdc and the tappet clearances are perfect. My question now is what do I do to make sure that dowel won't fall out again?
