Is the 1100 engine a clearance engine?

Forgive me if I'm asking a dumb question, but I noticed the pistins have cutouts for the valves. Are they enough to keep the valves from hitting the pistons?

Depends!-- Obviously they keep the valves from hitting with the cams timed correctly & the engine RPM's under valve float.

 

But they are not deep enough to keep the valves from hitting the pistons if the valves float or the cams go out of time.

Which means it is an interference engine.
