Curious if he got it running.

I had a intake valve contact the head and bend on a yard find.

Before turning it over AT ALL, I'd add to what's already been said and something I'll do from now on when waking up one of these interference engines is separate the carbs from the heads and squirt PB Blaster on the stem of the intake valves and let it soak a couple days soaking them some more periodically. Doing this will also soak the rings, cylinder walls, and exhaust seats.
Then before turning it over by hand, loosen all of the valve adjusters as far as they'll go and take a look see if the valves are closing.
Doing all this may seem overkill and unneccesary to some but it may just prevent having to pull a head to replace a bent valve.
