Re: Stock Cast Crank or New Cast Crank
What caused the problem in the first place (low oil level, low oil pressure)? Did any bearings spin? IF it only needs bearings, and isn't anything damaged in the engine, I would go cheap. If only a bearing got wiped out, and crank isn't scored/blued, fine emery cloth on the journal to remove bearing build up, and throw in new bearings. If that fails, then swap in a kit with crank and all new bearings, or start saving for a stroker kit while you are running it!
I had a 225 slant 6 mopar extremely low on oil start hammering away, and 1 rod bearing was wiped out, mains were fine, and crank was decent. $18 later for new rod bearings, and I put over 30,000 hard miles on it after that.
