No to the bent valves. The engine would run with a misfire 100% of the time.
With the 2 codes, you listed, it is pointing right at the syncro. You could have a bad syncro assembly.
You need to resolve those codes first with either setting the timing or replacing the syncro. It will cause the hard start and the misfire.
