Did you do the valve timing correctly meaning no.1 piston on its compression stroke/TDC and cam and crank aligned properly before you slap the belt on.

You sure your engine is not an interference type. Also meaning the valves will touch the pistons when the T-belt breaks.

So what ur saying is my valves are junk and now the pistons probably are as well? Not sure if mine is the interface or not?
