I am considering buying a 1988 300E that had the timing chain break. It is currently at a Ford dealership, and they said that it bent 8 rods. Obviously they don't know anything. They said it needs a new motor ($6000). I can buy the car quite cheap, but was wondering what kind of damage would the chain do if it broke. Is the 300E motor a zero tolerance motor? I am assuming that it bent the valves. If I pulled the head and got it repaired would that more than likely fix the problem?
Thanks in advance. (This forum is super informative)
