How does the owner know it's a timing chain? They might be guessing and the problem might be something else. Maybe cheaper or more expensive to fix. My recommendation if you like the car, is to get the car to a local mechanic of your choice and have them inspect the car, that way you know exactly what is wrong and negotiate a proper price for the car. A small amount of money it will cost you over the long term. If the owner balks at the idea, walk away.

Before you buy it.check out how much a used engine because if that belt broke while the engine was running.1)valves are bent2)heads possably cracked3)i valve may have punctured a piston.the only way to see this is to put another tbelt.THIS IS AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE.
