When you say the pedal wouldn't go down, do you mean you physically couldn't push it? Or that you pushed it and nothing really happened?

And I don't believe the SOHC motor is an interference type motor so if it is the belt thats broke, you should be good to line up the marks and throw a new belt on it.
