Well, here's the pics of the rotating assembly:
The shiny marks on the bottoms of the pistons are where they were hitting the block at BDC, or hitting the cranshaft counterweights. That was the bad rapping noise it had. 3 out of 4 bent rods.

The damage was done as soon as the water was pulled in. The intake was full with water to the top of the throttle body. 4k rpms to 0 in one crunch. No tools, middle of the night, couple miles out in the woods, you do what you have to. And at that point, who cares if the oil is diluted with water, the engines junk anyway.

Oh, and I drowned the motor back in 2005 mabe? Then I ej-swapped the car, drove it for a number of years, and took it off the road this december, too much rust. Had a lot of fun with that car. I finally got to see inside the engine because one of my friends showed and interest in seeing what an engine looks like inside, so I let him take it apart. we had to split the case and take the rods apart because you couldn't pull the wristpins out through the access holes anymore.
