ok I finally pulled the engine down and here is what i found three lifters had failed in pieces one of them lodged between the cam and block snapping the cam in two places at the back of the second cam bearing and in front of the third cam bearing. that section of the cam was in the oil pan. one of the lifter bores has a deep scratch in it also the #3 and #4 connecting rods show damage from the chunk of camshaft bouncing off of them and hitting the block. so the lost of casualties are lifters, cam, rocker arms, connecting rods, and the block. the heads and pistons are untouched.

I have decided to just go back to what i know and build a small block to replace this failed BB
