But You May have been lucky a long time ago a friend of mine had a timing belt break on a fiat shop told him $300 this was in 1987 I bought the car from him for $50.00 dollars $15 dollars more than the junkyard would give him I bought a timing belt for $25.00 spent 3hrs installing it, Drove the car for a year and a half till one of the rear strut mounts tore loose still a good deal but I was lucky had valves been bent i would have lost 75 dollars in87 that was 1/2 a weeks pay wish you the best of luck oh by the way most engines bend valves
