You did all that prep to the block. Did you clean the crank, clean the oil passages with pipe cleaner, wash with detergent and blow dry.

Grit damage like this is usually caused by a dirty crank. I see it quite often from customers that ASSUME the crank is clean..Thats why standard/re-grind cranks come with a written disclaimer.
