At the very least you will bend valves, most of the time they destroy the pistons, crack the blocks and generally just make a boat anchor out of your engine.

nownow TS, we recycle to take another whack at it~next time NON- interference please...always used to be relieved when working on Volvo 240s because you could NOT mess the timing up...a Honda on the other hand...have destroyed a customer's car because the timing belt was off by ONE tooth~
