well, if it's just a bent valve, you MIGHT be able to pay someone to do it for that much.

but valves only get bent when they hit pistons- and pistons are made out of soft aluminum

do you have other valve that are bent or worn?
is the valve bent from hitting on the piston?
you may have to replace all the valves + 1-piston and ????

all i know so far w/o taking apart the heads is that one cylinder has no compression

The best thing you could do at this point is to get that head off & take a look at the valves & the piston (s) ... No way to tell how bad it is till you look at it....
