Inspect carefully and reasseble. It 's advisable you know what caused the crank failure. Correcting this problem could play an important roll as to the life expectancy of the new crank. Tell us more about what happend.

The engine is in a 4x4 suburban. It belongs to a friend,and I really dont know all the details of what happened . He asked me to look at it ,and I found the crank snout ,has snap off from the crank.If it was mine I would rebuild the engine,but its not mine . He wants to fix it and keep the 60,000+ plus engine. So what would I do get another crank at the exact demisions as this one and replace?Sounds easy. IMO the time it would take to do this work,I could have a fresh engine in it.Whats is your opinion, would you fix the old engine ,or replace the engine?

Well, if the crank snout broke, then the two things that come to my mind are bad balancer(slipped outer ring) or improper install method of balancer(hammer). Perhaps the balancer was too small to start with. I would find the root of the cause first. That's a lot of work to have happen again.
