CAUTION: This application is an interference engine. Do not rotate camshaft or crankshaft when timing belt is removed, or engine damage may occur.

I would suspect the valves are damaged. But I have seen some engines with no damage at all ! You could try just the belt. You have nothing to lose apart from time !
