We haven't torn into the old engine yet, but the carnage is magnificent. There is a gigantic hole the size of a baseball (maybe softball?) in the left hand side between the block and the oil pan. It's conceivable the heads are salvageable, but we suspect they are warped. If water got into the oil, anything that was supposed to be lubricated will have gotten a thrashing. We will take a look later.
