How much metal made it's way through the engine?
Inspect the bearings to make sure they're not damaged, as well as the oil pump rotor / internals.

Pretty minimal metal considering. From the time I heard the knocking till I shut it down was only a but a couple seconds. One bolt head was actually stuck in the block casting faceing tward the balancer. The other was in the oil pan in pieces and the 3rd as you can see was still in the balancer which actually caught on the casting and prevented the crank from turning a full 360. The threads of the bolts came right out with a flat-head screwdriver. Looks to me like someone forgot to locktite those bolts in.

I removed the crank and also the piston closest to the carnage to make sure everything was nice and clean. Ill check the pump for metal once time permits and also get the pick-up and pan cleaned up.

The other issue Im having is that I was unable to find a part# for those bolts. The crank is sold as a set with the balancer installed....at least from the phishe(sp) I was looking at. I'm sure I can find a tapper-head bolt that will fit, but Im not sure if the weight difference would be critical.

The weight differences will be massive with such a high revving motor.
