problem is finding a place that will polish the crank in his area.ill tell him to look around some more.
the big thing is if the engine ran fine before it came apart why would u change the bearings and not just reuse them, each rod got number punchedas to what cyl it came out of so they wouldnt get mixxed up and the bearing would go back in the same exact spot
or is my reasoning wrong on that point
