When you remove the head, dummy it back up and check PV clearence before you get the head shaved at all.

Walkinshaw has nailed it. Its best to dummy it up first so that your not second guessing any measurements

Piston 2 valve luvin is bad!
Had this happin in my corty. Snapped top of valve off just below the retainer, valve dropped and hit piston, valve bent, piston forced bent valve back up. Fortunately the valve was bent just enough to stop it falling down again.
