Are you saying the JT motor is interference???
I would not agree at all.... 
I snapped the cam belt on my '86 4kq (JT) @ 5000+ RPM WOT and 
coasted to the side of the highway... made a call got some tools
and a belt and was back in business within the hour....

BTW, I did NOT do the WP at that time.... had to 6 months l8r though...
Oh well, original pump @ 200k+...
O-ring leaked pump was still good!
I'll quit rambling now... bye!
