Timing belt snapped, need Valves and Pistons

Yes, timing belt failure and you know the rest:


One has a hole, the rest are bruised. The head valves are all bent, some broke off.

P.S.
This is a spare engine im putting together.

I have all parts needed to make it run again, and its all thanks to few good men. Thank you.

sorry for your loss.
how many miles were on it before it let go?
it probably would be cheaper to replace the whole engine, then sell of the salvagable parts, unless you are crafty with building engines.

Just out of curiousity, anybody know if valve guides commonly get ruined when this happens?

Hi, I'm two hours away and have a spare stock head and block for parts. Also have two spare race blocks.
Dont fret you can fix that.

I bought this 02 SVT from craigslist few months ago that had 125K with blown belt for $1,500.
The body and interior was so good that i had to throw in another engine which by the way i found in Harry's U-Pull It, about 2 weeks earlier! What a luck..

Yea, i paid $100 for the complete engine and $60 for the Getrag and plus many other parts like spare c-arms, axles, complete front struts and tie rods, ECU which all totaled $300!

I've put in the engine and the car runs great since then, so now i have this shot head (valves and seats are gone) and the block with shot piston cups and possible bent rods.

So i'm putting this engine together the cheapest way possible as a spare engine.

Oh.... I thought I was going to help get another SVTon the road by selling. On second thought I'd rather save for a spare set. Keep looking.
