"I believe it is worth fixing if the motor didn't smoke. However, I would do a compression check before fixing to check for bent intake or exhaust valves before fixing. The timing chain and gear set is around 60.00 and it is a 505 hour job to do the timing chain and gears and access is limited to the area where these repairs are to be made. If the general appearance of the car inside and out is good and the motor didn't smoke, tick or knock prior and compression is ok it is still worth fixing in my opinion.
