I am at a loss of what could have caused this. I have a 1977 Ford e-350 cutaway (RV). What happen was that I was traveling on i5 and at random my vehicle had low oil pressure, next thing I know my engine is jerking hard and my belt snaps (46 inch belt) and I pull over after hearing a huge boom.

Is this a rod knock or something else? This is right under tmy passenger side, next to my starter (which I had to get replaced because it didnt work), which I believe was damaged by the hole blowout.

Thanks guys.

Looks like a broken rod hole to me, low oil pressure mentioned starved rear journal, #4 rod seized and snapped. Just guessing, and, that looks real familiar. Had a 78 F250 do the same.
