Interference engines have very little tolerance for incorrect valve timing, I would be expecting a bent valve or two.

That is a non interference motor. But you still might be gambling I just put a timing belt on one and the valves did get bent. Why? I don't know? Many timing belts have been put on these motors with no problems. Its worth throwing a belt on id say rather than swapping it out
