I think pulling the oil pan will reveal the source of the problem, and it will not likely be a pretty sight.

Sounds like it may have thrown a rod. Drain what's left of the oil and break open the oil pan. It's no good anymore anyway, it'll allow you to see what's happened inside.

OK, here is the issue, is it worth fixing? cost? I could probably get a whole sub-frame with motor and tranny for cheap...this is for off road use, not insured...rear wheal drive, so I am looking around right now.. :(

You are going to have to start at the bottom and find out all of what is broken. Then decide if you want to repair or replace, or scrap.

That oil pan is trash. Remove it, break it open if you have to, see what is on the inside. Something broke it, figure out what the culprit was.

OUCH.



Now you need to find out why the oil pan broke like that. Pretty sure you need a short block at the least, and a long block to make things easier.

On my '93 Astro, I have a quarter-sized hole because a lifter punched out the oil pan. You need to see what did that damage, because something inside is much, much more broke than that.
