I disassembled the head on my 83-300D today and I have an obviously bent valve. My question is; how do I check the rest of the valves to see if there straight?

You could spin each one in a drill press or an electic drill clamped to a vise.
How did the valve get bent? What a drag.

You'll be having the valves ground when you have the head reworked right? They'll let u know if a valve(s) are not servicable due to warpage.

The complete story of how I bent the valve is posted under the title "83-300D engine question" on page two. But basicly I broke the timing chin at 60MPH.

Jay was wondering if you had any symtoms to the chain breaking before hand or did it just break? Was the tach fluctuating?

Does you model have a double chain? Does anyone know what model do? Does mine?

Mattsuzie, I had no warning that the timing chain was going to break, BUT I new it was worn and I bought a new chain,BUT I broke my foot and didn't get around to doing the job. My tach was working OK. My 300D dose have a double chain. I know that the 83-360SL had a single chain as I had look at buying one. I seem to remember that the 80to83 360 engine cars had a single chain, BUT I don't know that for sure.
