Hey Raz, sounds like it might have pulled the head bolts out of the block, seen it lots of times and repaired a ton of them with timeserts in the block, takes a special fixture and the correct drill, setting tool, tap and timesert installation tool. Just my input brother, not trying to step on ya. Dr. Hagerty
