The oil pump is driven by the auxillary pulley/shaft inside the timing cover. This pulley is driven by the timing belt.

A broken timing belt would mean a non functional oil pump, among other things. What is your symptom?

engine starts and runs great but no oil pressure. Just put a new oil pump in still no oil pressure. I can turn the intermediate shaft and it doesn't feel like I'm turning anything up in the engine where the auxillary shaft is at.
