info from Bucksnort RE: Anyone know where I can find an MC

<<fingers crossed that I can just pull the head and have a valve job!  Any
opinions?  Is there likely to be damage to the pistons, conn rods,
bottom end from a situation where the engine was slowing to idle when
the belt broke?>>

     When I pulled mine down the valves were severely bent and will definitely
need to be replaced.  There were impact marks on the tops of all five pistons.
Enough that smoothing them out would change the balance of the pistons.
     If you read my earlier post of today, you'll note that there is a chance
you only have one or two valves bent.  In which case you should be able to
rework the head (and only replace one or two valves) and go back together.
     But, all the remote wishing won't change whatever is in there.  And you
won't know until you have the head off the block.
