Some pics
Thoughts on the pics?

Your camshaft is toast, but we already knew that.

Google, can you make an album there?

Yes, you can make an album on google, I will play with it.

Forgot to mention - as a tip, use a flashlight to ensure you've got all of the bolts/nuts/etc. removed that holds the case together. I was seeing day light around 2/3's of the case, but it was not wanting to let go. checked, double checked, and counted. All seemed good. Still didn't want to let go. Took a flashlight and found a nut towards the bell housing covered in oil/tar/grunge/goop that I had overlooked. Removed it, and it came apart like butta'.

At least it wasn't this one ...

What nut towards the bell housing?

How about the nut towards the front left side of the case?
