Crank bearings are very bad with 3 of them being wider than cap but no visible scars scratches to crank. The bottom of each crank love is dark blue tinted like it got very hot. Thanks will

That is definitely the result of a loss of oil pressure. A very bad oil leak, failed pump or lack of maintenance can be big trouble for an engine especially with such high miles. As long as there is no damage to the engine block, you may be able to rebuild with a new rotating assebly and some machine work. Consider visiting a local machine shop or engine repair facility.
