Well, dad got the engine sent out to my uncle in California, who has it torn down.

Blown 2nd gear.

Not sure if the ignition made it or not - it got some chunks in there. The oil pump is also in question, it may have gotten scuffed up or something if some debris got in there.

Right now it's looking like about a 400-500 dollar repair job, including a fresh top end and crank bearing.
