I've been there, same motor, same thing.
It does interfere, bent valves,
can you do the fix yourself? (if not plan on $2,500 for job)
The good part.......
This motor had 215,000miles on it and after valve job smogged better than new.
the piston tops had a very light soft crust, still had hone marks in bores.
don't pay more than $1k for it. maybe more if the body is perfect
