Default Do I need new valves?

Hello I recently got into an accident, and my cam gear cracked due to my front mount piping. It didnt hit it straight on, but stalled out the engine. It cracked from the side, but the belt seems to be intact.

If the cam gear didnt actually break apart and the belt didnt snap then most likely you should be ok. No way to know 100% until its replaced and you start the motor.

Did you try to start the car afterwards? Don't until you figure out what state the timing is in.

Even with everything still relatively intact, you could have skipped teeth on the belt. Check the timing marks if you can.

Yeah I wouldn't want to start the car either. I guess the only way to know is crank it by hand with a breaker bar and see if you get any resistance. Remember to remove the spark plugs.

I never tried to start it. The gear just seemed to crack on impact, not staright on but towards the right edge of the pulley.

i would suggest the same as others have. dont start it, but when you can hand crank gently to see if you come across resistance. i highly doubt theres any need for new valves, as the problem is most likely just the cracked pulley. i would unplug the battery to prevent anyone from mistakenly trying to turn it over.
