The launched dipstick indicates a large amount of pressure entering the crankcase area in a very short period of time. The failure of the valve cover gasket indicates the same thing. A few things could cause this. Worn rings can leave cylinder pressure through into the crankcase, but I would doubt that they could pass that kind of pressure through in such a short time. A major piston failure (hole) could result in this type of pressure. If it is a turbo-equipped model, the turbo could also be responsible.
I would be very careful of doing any rotating until I got in and took a look at things. Probably the easiest way would be to drop the pan and look up into the cylinders from the bottom. Someone else might be more able to assist you with any problems with the turbo if so equipped.
Good luck.

Doesn’t sound good if the piston gap and ring end gap were all in spec when you went through it. I can’t think of how else you could get that kind of pressure into the crankcase without a piston failure. This would also explain the “tightening” and “loss of power” you experienced. I would pull the pan down and take a look at the cylinders from there. Also, check the bottom of the pan for metal or other evidence.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
