Looking back on this, the vehicle should not have been driven.
It went from "drove normally while in transit" to "led to a valve issue".
Pointing fingers isn't going to help so what are your options.
If you have a mechanic that you feel is professional and you trust, that is step one.
1. Find, or have your mechanic, locate a used engine and have it installed.
2. Sell your non-driveable Nox to a junk yard, or at an auto auction
3. Give your mechanic the go ahead to pull the head and the front timing cover to determine the extent of the damage. If the block can be used you probably will need a head, timing chains, pistons and rings etc etc.
I would pick number 3, either way it's going to cost you some $$.
