Don't bump threads.
Don't do it a third time please.
Plan on replacing all those bearings. Those little metal shavings could have quite possibly damaged most of them. If you're hearing a knocking sound, and seeing metal shavings in the pan, then something's messed up. If I were you, and you're solely using this car for a daily driver, I'd buy a Topline engine rebuild kit and just throw it back together. Have the block inspected and hot-tanked as well, if it needs to be bored, bore it; you can specify what bore you have when ordering the rebuild kit.
As for now, the color of the shavings can tell you a decent bit about them.
Any help is worth a try
It seems like that's what's causing it, but it'll be a little hard to tell without cranking the car back up. Get a removal kit for the balance shaft.
