SuperStock, Good to hear nobody got hurt.

Are you guys talking about the two vertical studs where the conical 'insulator' bolts to the aluminum timing cover? Do you think they had been over torqued or could it have been something else?

Yes..those bolts. Without performing some type of stress analysis, no way to know. The timing belt that was on my car had been there for many, many miles so if they were over torqued, they had been over torqued for a long time.
