I'd say its quite possible the block or crank was damaged by the 1st incident
engine assembly needs a lot of careful measurement so were the crank journals measured for roundness? was the crank checked for straightness, was the block line bored and oversized main bearing fitted?
I'd say the most cost effective repair would be to source a good used engine as a direct replacement and fit that
either that or get an engine shop to tackle the rebuild
sorry for not replying earlier, for some reason the system wasn't showing you had replied
I suspect that the 1st failure with the lack of oil pressure may have warped the crank or the block so the block will need a line bore with over sized shells to put it all back straight again
this can be checked if you use some 'plasti gauge' to measure bearing clearances on each main bearing and confirm that they are all the same within 0.015mm
do you still need help?
