I lost some metal in the engine due to valve train issue of my own doing. I thought I got it clean as could be.. A shaving wasn't washed out, got past the screen and seized my oil pump, snapped the oil drive shaft the went to the dizzy. Was cruising 70 on the freeway

I have the engine apart now just cause I feared a shaving got loose from cam damage (valve float maybe?) I didn't find any but I won't chance it anymore. This is the damage, in my case metal would be minimal

Haha to scare is not the intent, but it did happen to me and I learned the hard way. Lucky I was not far from home and it didn't result in major engine damage

At minimum in your case I would pull the pan maybe look at the oil pickup.

Sadly non of that tells you about what happened at the valve spring
