For you motor Guys

Alright, Something got in between my head and cam journal and managed to seize it. Not bad, barely enough that me and my buddies can't believe it seized, and a machine shop said I could probably still use the head. Anyways, I don't know what I should do about the bottom end? I pulled the oil pan off to find some small shavings and glittery metal in the oil from the head, they are aluminum I can tell. This motor was just rebuilt like 300 miles ago. New bearings mains and rods, and new rings. What do you guys opt I do? Pull the whole motor, or just some main and maybe a rod bearing to see how they look?

pull a rod bearing...things look ok stitch it back up together. As long as it was a small small amount. Otherwise always err on the safe side and pull the motor.
