Default 807 engine repair

Hi Guys,
I new to the forum but really need some good advice on which way to go with my 807. the car broke its cam belt on the M5 last year which caused some considerable damage. After asking a few well know mechanics for advice it seemed very apprent that a replacement engine would be required. i did find a old school mechanic that was willing to strip the head etc and repair for minimal cost. within the last week the mechnic has told me he has stripped the head and replaced the damaged valves and the engine is back together but only running on 3 cylinders no compression.he has more or less told me that he doesn`t want to spend any more time on the car. i now have a half repaired engine. does anyone know how much it would cost to repair the bottom end or would it easyier to replace the whole lump.

My cam belt snapped a few months ago, I found a very helpful guy in Barnsley who was happy to repair my engine in situ, unfortunatley I'd already sent mine in to a local garage for repair (Big Mistake!!)

If he has repaired it properly and no cam lifters are holding a valve open then the only reason for no compression would be a holed piston this should have been aparent while the head was off

We have had belt failures a few times and rarely does the head need to come off !!

Could be valve seats are damaged causing no compression but its unlikely without piston damage were any valves actually damaged and did you actually see the damage

i haven`t seen the damage to engine, the guy that tried fixing it is very well regarded in my area so i have no real reason to doubt anything he says. he also hasn`t charged me for the work hes done, to be honist hes just lost heart in the car. Currently has just under 100k on the clock with some service history but definatly not detailed.
