It's possible the rod and crank caused the origional problem, but also the timing chain that you said was kinked.
Dropping a valve would contact the piston, putting stress on the crank and rod. As I asked you originally, ask the seller about rod tightness and side clearance. Beware if it is a 2001, as some transmission parts are different and have caused problems.
