Doc here ,

I defer to Poncho, since he's seen the malady before..and I haven't , But I should think a dry start would score Both halfs of the bearings..

With all the failures you are having, it sounds like the block wasn't cleaned of machine dust before it was assembled though.. did you wash the block down (assuming you assembled it) ? You may have a plugged gallery.
