Yeah man, only engines that can and do suffer serious damage are valve-to-piston interference ones...
Usually very high performance engines where the piston would touch the valves if out of time, but most day-to-day engines are not like that, thou ferrari sure is

See because my first car had a 231 v6 that jumped 1 tooth right as I got to work... I later drove it home from work and then to the mechanic the next day, ran like crap the whole time but they just replaced gears and chain and gtg.
600 bucks it ran me, maybe 700...

Yeah, labor + parts and all...
Might cost more today or if it's a diesel, but not that much more.

Brad Ent -- Excellent advice ... you're obviously a professional business man in addition to being an LCO !!

Make sure you pull the valve covers off first to check the push rods. If the valves are bent you can see the stuck open valves as the valve springs will be compressed.

You have to install the new chain and gear before you check compression.
