Speedy identification of the source of the leak and thorough cleansing of the oiling system are vital. I was lazy and didn’t change oil immediately after a blown head gasket replacement. Cost me $2000 to replace the engine. ~$1400 for the engine and the rest was upgrades and regular maintenance parts one normally does when swapping.

The result of my laziness was a spun rod bearing that seized and locked up the #6 if I recall correctly. It broke free from the piston, punched holes in the block on either side just above the oil pan, and cut the camshaft in half. Was not a joyful day in Mudville.
