    It ran fine until I red lined it anyway so STD must have been correct.
    It's either excessive bearing clearance or a problem with the oil supply.

    Neither

    I reckon the crank is snapped but no motivation today, tomorrow's the day.

    Broken crank, or a skeleton wanking in a dustbin?

    Here is the source. A lump of weld spatter stuck on the back of the flywheel preventing it from sitting correctly, allowing it to wobble so causing the bolts to unscrew.
