yes, the timing mark for the rear cam (closes to the fire wall) is at about three oclock and will not rotate back to the timing mark

do you know how the cam got so far out of position? You may not be able to move it into position because a valve is hitting a piston. This engine is supposedly an interference motor. If it feels like the cam stops because it is hitting something, it may well be. You would be better off taking the cam off and reposition then put it back on. but the damage may have already occurred.
