The financial models may seem to be in your favor now, but that may turn if the engine suffered main or rod bearing damage
from oil starvation while running on its side. Does your son know if It kept running after he went down?

Looking at the valve cover damage, its hard to tell, but maybe ice hung up the rocker arms, or was in gear high enough to stall the motor and prevent further damage. Luckily, used motors are more common than used FD's and pretty cheap.
