Default Over revving diesel defender=cracked block?

Hey guys/gals, a client of mine has brought his defender now smoking heavily(white) for service. Upon asking a few questions, could over revving a diesel crack the block? It runs poor, smokes and knocks. Seems like 2 of 4 cylinders are not doing their job. Any insight or questions/comments ? Thanks

Cracked and leaking oil. Left side of engine. Between the aluminum mating surface of the head. Going to compression test tomorrow to see whatís up.
