I just Bought a 2001 crv from someone that put a head on it themselves. They Drove the car about 15000 miles and the belt broke and the car wouldn't run. I went to school years ago for aircraft mechanic and do most of my own repairs on my equipment which range from cars to dump trucks and construction equipt. I believe this is an interference engine, I cranked the engine by hand and there doesn't appear to be a seized pulley any where. what would be my next course of action? how do I tell if a valve was bent in the process?

First, let me welcome you to a really good forum. As for your crv, this vehicle as far as repair, is no where like working on what your used to. More than likely the previous owner did not replace the timing belt with the cylinder head. Seek some advise from a reputable mechanic who is familiar with this engine, and go from there. JMO, good luck.
