Run 6.5 Turbo Diesel approx. 7 miles after oil cooler line

Customer Question

Run 6.5 Turbo Diesel approx. 7 miles after oil cooler line broke before noticing no oil pressure. There was no load on motor other than 65 mi. an hr. on near level rd. down a valley of 1 to 1.5 percent grade. Do you think there might be a chance that it did not spin a bearing on the crank or a rod. I think that it is highly probable that the turbo bearings are shot after this distance. Engine starts and at idle does not sound bad but an increase in
RPMs it does not sound very good. Could this be because the turbo is not putting enough air into engine.
