Recheck the case at the very left front, right next to the balancer. It is possible the balancer was hitting the case, and the damage was not as obvious as you might think. Unfortunately if you don't find the source of the shavings, you will need to tear the engine down until you do. They came from somewhere. You said you have the engine about 80% torn down, might as well go ahead and finish it, and check everything.
