Yep

Scrap metal now.
Get another engine, that one is gone.
It appears that a piston rod has punched out the oil pan.

Could have broken a crown from the piston or some other parts came loose. Fell down and got lodged betwixt the spinning crankshaft and the side of the block. Could be many things...in any case I think you're SOL.

maybe you could JB Weld it?

Just kidding, sorry to hear about another dead diesel. Read this right after reading about another one that went 30 miles without oil! What a night...

Sorry to hear about your car.

I have an engine/tranny that came out of my wrecked 85SD for sale.

It has 185,000 miles and was running great before the wreck.

Let me know if interesested.

If you can, remove the upper pan and take a few more good pictures. Without an internal shot, it's only a guess what may have caused it.

Inkling of hope: Mabye a rock or chunk of junk in the road knocked a hole from the outside.

There was a thread recently about something (a baffle??) coming loose in the oil pan, resulting in a loss of oil pressure. Perhaps a loose baffle collided with a spinning crank. If so, damage might not be severe.

Not too discourage you from dropping the pan but from what I've read in the forums about pulling the upper pan you practically have to pull the engine out to do it. There just isn't enough clearance to just unbolt it and drop it down.

I know I have done it no you cant really do it pull the motor one fourm says you can do it by putting 4x4 blocks under motor mounts yeah right there was no head on the one i pulled and i bent the firewall getting it high enough to get the pan out. Needless to say I pulled the motor out of the car the upperpan went in. good luck
