Yes, the reason it was off was the timing chain had broken. As for bent valves? Well duh!
Like I said, this ain't my first rodeo. Went all through the head, replaced 16 valves, lifters, and rockers. all valves lapped in, seating well. New seals, too. Also replaced the balance-shaft gears, chain, and guides. Shafts seemed fine. I really just wanted a quick answer to my quick question.
do I gotta put goop on the bolts?

I even put in a brand new Pfetzer valve.
