Never, NEVER polish off the coating on the bearing. If the bearing shows wear only on one side, then your crank is not straight. It will be okay for a street driven car, but if you plan to run it hard have the crank straightened by a reputable shop. Cranks must be straightened by hammer blows, NEVER by putting it in a press. As you may well imagine, only an expert should be doing this. And don't watch. It will scare you to death! lol
