Well, now that the motor is torn down we can see the damage caused by running it out of oil. Cracked the oil sensor at the bottom-rear (passenger side) on the case. I remember the hail of small rocks stuffed under the machine, but was preoccupied with the cut tire. Over the next few operating hours the oil ran out into the sand. Sand has a funny way of concealing fluids. Smoked crank and both rods. Getting a smoking deal on the repair though.
