Thanks, I loosened the rocker shaft bolts enough to get a small gap under the rear support and still got no oil with the engine running.
Tomorrow I will drop the pan and check the rear main. I may have more questions after that.-Thanks

OK, today I took off the rear main bearing cap and removed the bearings. They are marked upper and lower and they were in wrong. The one marked upper was on the bottom and the one marked lower was on top. So I assume that was the problem. The hole pattern is very different between them. They are marked .020 so are oversized. Should I just get a new set of .020 oversize and put it back together the right way? The crankshaft journal looks fine.

If the bearings look good, as in no galling or overheating, they can be put back in. Are the lock tabs ok? They may have been flattened by installing them wrong, something to look at, they could be bent back.

I would remove the other main caps and be sure they are in right. Might take a look at the rod bearings, they may have not been oiling either. Make sure the rod caps are on right, the bearing lock tabs go both on the same side.

At least now you've found the problem, just hope nothing is damaged!

Thanks for the ideas. The bearings are a little galled and there are some flakes in the grooves so I plan on replacing them. Good idea I will check them all even the rods.
