I bent a valve

I recently had a belt break. Actually the teeth were sheared right off of the belt, and I did bend one intake valve. I didn't realize that the factory recommends replacing these belts every 35K miles. I replaced the valve myself, which was pretty easy, and I made sure to lap it in well with lapping compound. The only tricky part is getting the valve spring retainers off, and if you feel like doing this job let me know and I'll tell you what you need to do.
