Bob is talking about rolling in main bearings. A very common practice in all Diesel engines and I have done it many times myself. But with a bearing failure, this is sketchy at best. What does the crank look like? Can you feel grooves in it if you run your fingernail across it from the front of the engine to the back? If so, then the engine needs out come out (or come oot, if you have a Canadian accent) and be polished at best - machined at worst.

I suggest you get someone experienced in engine rebuilding to take a look at the engine and give you advice. It's prit near impossible to give good advice with just pictures. This needs a laying on of hands.
Can rent movies at BlockBuster.
