I recall the engine died while I was in the process of changing gears.Wow...a weird one for sure. But, good news if timing is OK and cover doesn’t have to come off.
A seized PS pump should have shredded the belt for sure, but if the engine was only idling when it seized then maybe it was enough to stall it? Will it crank now?
Should I crank the engine without a valve cover or should I put cover, DIC, Spark plugs, etc, and then start it?
