My 97 960 idler pulley failed resulting in timing belt coming off then the exhaust valves contacting the pistons (interferance engine) bending all exhaust valves. Also when removing the head I found that this wasn't the the first time. The intake valves hit prior to my purchase, carbon filled marks was the give away. Also finding a broken head bolt was the topper. That bolt was covered w/ years of oily grime with about 1/4 /still in the block. My question is , is it worth the $ to fix with 210,000 miles? Also the broken head bolt any ideas? the engine still in the car
