Ruh Row! Time to bring in a pro. The best DR mechanic I know in San Fran
is Jennifer Bromme, owner of Werkstatt in the Mission. Jennifer is a talented mechanic trained in Germany. She is honest and has a real soft spot for low budget world adventure travelers.
She knows DR's.
From your description I don't think you've done all that much damage. (I hope!) But you may have BENT a valve or two. The fact the motor shut right off and no metal to metal sounds is a very good thing. I think you will escape cheaply (with luck) on this one.
Looking forward to an update! Fingers Crossed!
