Time for a timing chain? or maybe a complete set?
Some of the older engines had nylon tips on the sprockets. Once they get aged they become brittle and snap.
Timing sets are pretty cheap too. If you decide to swap it, get the double roller. "The only thing stronger than steel is more steel". Not sure who said it, but I think they were right.
