check again you oil pump for stucked pieces from your oil filter.

also blow compressed air to all oil pipes especialy those that feed the crankshaft and rods.

I strongly recommend that you pull the plug at the other end of the main oil passage and use something like a shotgun bore cleaning kit to clean that oil passage, also if you're rebuilding the bottom end get a small bore (like a .22) rifle cleaning kit to clean the oil passages to the main caps and such.

you can take the bore brush and get any debris and caked up **** out of the small passages and then take the cleaning cloth with some solvent to get everything super clean, follow with compressed air through all oil passages.

also what might be worth it is to remove the pressed in ***** on the crank so you can clean out the internal passages of the crank. over time with mileage and after an engine failure, the rotation of the crank and centripetal force causes any debris, carbon, and gunk to accumulate in the crank where each passage is drilled, any small metal shavings can also gather here and be knocked loose over time passing through the bearings causing damage. Again use the small caliber bore brush soaked in solvent to break up any varnish, carbon, gunk etc. followed by the cleaning cloth soaked in solvent then compressed air

after you have removed the ***** simply tap each location with a 1/8npt tape and put an allen head plug in place with red loctite. this not only eliminates the chance that a ball could work it's way loose over time but it gives you a very easy way to clean the cranks internal passages. I've done this on countless crankshafts from hondas to nissans and so on with no trouble and very good results.

anytime you have a failure like you did, especially with parts of the filter travelling through the oiling system it's uber important that you thoroughly clean every place oil travels to make sure you've removed any foreign debris that could potentially cause premature component wear or lead to another failure
