Rebellious little Valves

So this is what happens to rebellious little valves that try and fight with the pistons. They never win.

4 pistons vs 16 valves and the pistons still won. Lol

For those of you wanting to know this is what will happen if you don't do your timing belt when you should. Mine was done fine but a bolt holding one if the pulleys failed and this happened. (Long story)

Just thought I would share it with the guys that are putting off getting there belt changed. GET IT DONE! : )

I think I am gonna keep the valves and make something out of them. I dunno what, but its just a little history of the car. Open to suggestions. : )

besides needing new valves did your head need machined?

Ahh, those pistons are bullies, aren't they? Did they escape the confrontation unscathed, or were the valves able to inflict some damage? Bummer!
Thanks to both of you for the warning.

The pistons are fine. The fight broke out at a pretty low RPM. I think I managed to save them with that. Hehe.
The head was fine as well. Overall I am pretty lucky. It's not costing me a penny. (Once again, long story)
