I got the engine rolled over and the pan off. The rod bearing on number four is gone and it took the journal with it.

There was oil on the head gasket around number four cylinder and in the cylinder also all down the back of the engine. Has anyone ever seen a head gasket fail like this? It did not lose any coolant.

Could it have lost oil pressure at the back of the engine from this and not lost coolant?

Any similar experiences would be interesting to here.

I know that these cranks are hardened. Can a crankshaft grinder turn one of these cranks and reharden it for reasonable money, or should I just find another crank?

Since the cylinders look so good, I believe I will replace the crank and bearings and leave the pistons in place.

I look forward to your responses,
