82 380SL timing chain jumped - bent some valves

Can anyone out there tell me if this engine could be re-built, and if so what would have to be done to it? Guess tomite as to cost.

In August and September of 2016 a poster using the name "burtajack" made a number of posts about tensioner and chain problems in the engine of a 380SL, including seeking replacement engines and labor help.
Nothing that we can see came of that series of posts. Now the same subject is again being posted under the same user name in three different threads.
1) Does "burtajack" not remember the past posts?
2) Is it possible that "burta" is just "jacking" everybody on this forum around?

My "guess tomite" is that burtajack is an annoying troll who should be ignored.
