Your motor still could be good? Small chance it is but throw a new chain on and see what happens. I'm new to the F150s, but I know if it's a non interference engine, having a chain or belt snap/break/dissappear doesn't harm the engine usually. It's mostly just smaller engines and newer cars that you need to worry about. IE: Principals 05 Aveo belt snapped, needed a valve/piston job... My friends chain snapped, needed a new chain worked twice as good after the new chain was put on.
