Hobo - thanks. I was hoping you'd chime in too.
I listened to this engine run last week and heard no noises at all.
Last week I didn't know about the age of the oil, etc.
That's part of the debate that I forgot to put in my original post.
It's an "all of a sudden" failure.
BTW, when I pulled the dipstick today, there was a bit of sludge on it.
Not gobs, but a clump I could easily see.
Last rights are probably in order.
