    chances are VERY high that you bent some valves. honda heads are
    interference heads which means that the piston reaches the top of the
    block and the valve extends below the top of the block, under normal
    conditions the valve is drawn back before the piston gets there but
    when the belt snaps the valves in at least 2 of the cilinders are
    partally extended
