Default Leakdown test results

Timing belt broke at idle due to a rag getting sucked into the cam gear and jamming (yea i know it was stupid but i need to know how stupid)
Leakdown Test Results
1-76%
2-66%
3-10%
4-86%

Ok i have the snap-on leakdown tester, the way i did it was hooked up the air line to the inlet hose and got the gauge to zero %(100psi) then hooked up the outlet hose to the hose in the spark plug hole and watched the gauge...............someone please tell me i have royally messed up

put the belt on (the right way)

but it looks like you bent and possibly dropped some valves.

and you're positive you had the piston at TDC for the particular cylinder?

Where was the air escaping....out the intake, out the exhaust, into coolant or into crank case?

when you do a leakdown test try to listen where the air is coming out from. Usually you can tell.
