Definitely luck. A lot of times, the reason people bend the valves is that they're too dumb to recognize a broken TB and keep trying to start the engine after it dies... But valves bend sooo easily, so he's REALLY lucky. I've seen people bend them just by turning the crank with a ratchet without the TB on it.
