    Take the oil filter out and check for debris. How can you tell if its pushing on crank ? I move my motor back on mounts until the midshaft has about 6mm play .

    Sounds like the pump went bad and its bearing play as said check for metal in the oil filter can wipe the motor out quick

    Hey thanks Steve took out the oil filter and seem to be no metal or debris in the filter itís a brand new filter as well but may have found the problem the ball bearings were destroyed and may have entered and destroyed my impeller could this have caused my crank to push forward

    yes, when the pump bearings fall apart, the impeller thrusts forward pushing into the engine.

    hopefully there won't be a follow up post for the engine grenading. I would be very surprised if that didn't take out the thrust bearings......
