I don't have any first hand knowledge of this engine but I know that jumping just one cog causes several degrees of timing error and lots of power loss. A few more cogs it will run terrible if at all. Keep running it and it will surely jump off or break and that's when you will break valves IF it is an "interference engine". I hope this helps.

Not many when we are talking about an interference engine.
