Most of the damage was done to my head after I ran it with no oil pressure. As best I know.. I didn't hear any rod knock. But here is the damage to the head.

My rocker arms were pretty scarred. As well as the cams but I didn't get a shot of those.

You need to bleed them and I found the easiest way was to stick a thin rod down the upper portion of the lifter and compress it while submerged.
