oil pressure

I've seen worse cranks, but for a 1 day old bearing thats ugly!! I wiuld suspect oil pressure failure also. if the rods were bleeding that tells me the rods werent "tight" Im suprised he had enough pressure to maintian lifter operation I bet he did some damage up top as well. And would you really trust the rods after bangning them around in there, you know the engine will always let loose at the weakest link.
