Turns out I'd just loosened some bolts on the Fly Wheel while driving the rough highway. $45 fix.

Pray for my lil Rustie...
Hit the highway this morning. Gorgeous day. Blue sky. No clouds. Clear roads.
500km's later, she broke down at the gas station, right after I filled her up.
No signs of any issues. I only stopped to fuel up. Went to start her, turned over and RATTLERATTLECLANGCLANGRATTLE.
Now she's at Joe Blow's mechanic shop on the side of the Trans Canada Hwy. From what Jon Smith at the gas station told me, it's my connector/connection/whatever rods, and I'm hooped.
I've been dealing with a wicked oil leak, originating at the rear seal on the engine. I topped it up before I left town, and checked it at the very place she broke down. At that point, she was bone dry on the dip stick, yet plenty of oil was under her on the ground. So clearly something's broke, and what was left of the oil went right to the concrete instead of the engine. So..that has me worried that I might have just killed my motor?
Anyone have any suggestions or similar incidents or words of kindness for me?
It's a 92 Cherokee...
Pray for her, as I'm still 1,000km's from home.
