it def sounds like a rod to me. If you lose #1 main/rod you lose virtually all oil pressure. That also explains the noise. Thats how mine was, i haven't heard the sound yet so i dont know how much like mine it was but you heard it so make an inference.

I'd say that probably didn't help. I'd suggest a bristle brush next time (like this http://www.grainger.com/1/1/45820-ro...disc-pads.html ). They cost a lot more, but they also last A LOT longer than a cookie. The lighter grit ones are much easier on surfaces than a cookie because they have some give to them.

Of course, having the head planed isn't such a bad idea either. Then use the bristle brush on the block and you should be good to go.
