If I am not mistaken the 6cly is a non interferance motor.
Damage should be minimal internaly.

I could only imagine what a mess it is under the timing cover though.

PLEASE TAKE PICTURES!!

you are correct it is not a interferance motor. I think there is something in the head maybe a bent vavle? If this was a older v-8 60 or 70 I would be able to figure it out. it is able to run under idle then brake under power there has to be something messing with the cam?
