unlikely... a secondhand head is an option and most important is new big end bearings...

If you can transport it to Swindon, Smaky is your man. Probably cheaper to recover it to him than pay someone local to be honest...

Valves always get bent with these engines. Not a big deal though, but better if the guides aren't damaged.
