Update #2

Just returned from the shop. Discussed the engine with shop technicians.

Tech who removed the head said the bolts seemed very loose. This from a guy who pulls those bolts every few days.

The failure was over about 30 degrees of the cylinder circumference. It wasn't a narrow channeled blowout. May have been leaking for a while and was not detectable until it got bad enough to hear. No oil in the coolant or coolant in the crankcase.
