The oil pump was also locked up but as to the how I dont know. I didnt see any metal in the oil when I drained the pan.
Should be done by tomorrow
Since you will be pulling the pan, it's probably not necessary to tell you this, but take extra care to get all of the bits of metal out of the system and after you have checked and cleaned everything I would put magnetic plugs in each pan plug hole and a magnet on the oil filter as well.
There is likely to be a lot of bits in the oiling system even if you didn't see any draining the oil and you'll want to get them all out.
Also, it's extra work, but I would check the bearings while the pan is off.
You ran it long enough after there wasn't any oil pressure, that there is likely to be some bearing damage.
