Looks like roller or needle bearing parts? I'm assuming they're steel and you picked them up with a magnet?
Sooo... update... I redid the timing AGAIN. But on my venture of reinstalling a timing chain guide i lost a washer, so i fished in that little opening into the oil pan and procured these little bastards... im no genuis or a mechanic but id say it goes to something important that obviously needs replaced.... any ideas?

Those could be timing chain pins from when the chain went out; or if there was a major failure with the water pump it could have been from that; I'm not sure exactly what kind of bearing is in the water pump, needle or roller, but its one or the other.Well timing chain went out, it didn't 'make a racket' just acted like it ran out of gas. Replaced the timing chain set up, thought i had it right the first go, but after all these no crank - no starts i busted it down again to redo timing. But putting it all together again, i ended up dropping a washer into the oil pan. So i fished the washer and all those mangled bearings out of the oil pan. Now i dont know if they were left from previous repairs from previous owners or what.
You might get a loaner harmonic balancer puller from Advance or O'Reilly's. It's the proper tool to use to remove the pulley, but also, the big ring thing (on right side of photo) with the three lugs sticking up, called a rotation stopper, is the ideal thing to keep the crankshaft from rotating while tightening the bolt:

kudos peva, i finally caved and went and bought a cheap 3jaw puller from harbor freight.. then after breaking one of the jaws on one of the three sets that come in the box i decided to watch a video on how to do it. The outer ring is shifted somewhat. Now before i start hammering again, can i be fixed in that manner or do i need to replace it?I have to think it has to be either the outer ring is shifted forward or the hub of the pulley is stuck on the crankshaft well before reaching its fully-seated position. I'd pull the pulley off with a proper puller (the kind that would not engage the outer ring) and, with it off see if you can see anything that would have caused it to bind up on the crankshaft (was the pulley rotated to the proper position to line its inner groove with the keying dowel?), or if the outer ring is out of position on the rubber ring and hub. Sometimes a pulley can tilt just a little instead of self-aligning and wedge itself on the shaft, or if there was any surface damage to the crankshaft that would cause the pulley to bind a up or wedge before fully seating. If that happened, you might find a deformed witness line on the crankshaft that you would need to clean up with a file (and rinse off with parts cleaner when you're done) so that it doesn't act as a snag point when you try to install the pulley again.
