Hello Friendlies,
Just checking in with you guys. Finally taken the head of the motor I bought which was reco'd head but the engine had a spun bearing. I'm not complaining because I got some good parts fuel pump, turbo, alternator etc. However because the bearing had disintergrated I was worried the the piston might of hit the valves. After removing head I think there was a tiny little kiss mark on the piston maybe. If the piston just touched the valve would it have bent it you think. I don't want the cost of buying all the valves just to replace one. any experiences out there. I also want to thank all you guys for the invaluable info you give me. I appreciate it heaps. A very special thankyou to micky mcd. for the time you took to write me in these forums.

Thanks guys.:p

Give the valve to a machine shop and get them to spin it up in a lathe. They'll be able to tell if it's bent.

And you should be able to buy just one valve, surely!
