We pulled the engine last night.  #5 & #6 rods were thrown; it looks as if the rod bearings lost oil flow.
This engine had not been run in a long while.  Do you think it is possible some sludge in one of the galleries broke loose & plugged up something?  Or, is it more likely that the oil level (being way low) starved those bearings?
