I'm not absolutely positive, Charles, but I'm fairly
sure that these engines were all non-interference
engines. I don't ever remember running into any with
bent valves, but I could be wrong. You may want to
check the Gates site, they have some listings of what
engines are free wheeling and which are not. It's not
completely accurate, but give it a try.
Thanks Ian. I have had supposed free wheeling engines, when grossly
abused drop a valve in to a piston. One Chevette had a broken valve spring
happen around the same time. The intake valve on #2 was bent at around 15
degrees, and dug in to the head. The idiot owner was well past the red line
when he snapped the belt.
