broken rod and broken dreams

Well i thought i just had a snapped timing chain, but snapped a rod and bent some valves,ruined a lunati 61603 cam,etc,etc. picked up a shortblock 460 with flat top(with 2 valve reliefs) pistons,CJ rods and once i get my edelbrock aluminum 75 cc heads checked out and new valves put in was thinking of trying a solid tappet cam,any suggestions? this engine will be going back into a 1969 cougar with a mildly built c-6 with a higher stall converter,3.89 gearing,strictly street driving,6000 rev limit. also where is a good source to buy the valves that were bent when the old girl decided to throw that rod? thanx,
jim

Have you figured out WHY the rod broke?

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sand box, with their bare hands.
