500SE with a broken chain....

Hi Guys,
I picked up a euro 500SE with a broken timing chain. (I assume its broken, the driver side valve cover is cracked). I'm going to start tearing it down tomorrow.

Question is, which head has the bent valves?

Any tips for tearing down the top end of a Euro M117?

Thanks in advance!

Same as a US one.

The valves will be bent on the left head. Chain very easily could still be intact the valve cover gets broken in one out of ten when a piece of the rail that caused the problem rolls under the chain over the gear driving the chain into the valve cover.

Thanks for your quick answer Steven! Time to do some exploratory surgery tomorrow then!
