It is impossable to inspect a crank over the internet. It is best to use your best judgement. If any thing seams suspect send it out for a full inspection.

Look for signs of heat damage (discoloration), carbon buildup, etc. Look for obvious signs of damage. Check what you can with feeler gauges or a dial indicator, based on info in the manual. If it's tight, rotates freely, and there's no apparent signs of damage, it's your call - run it, or drop the $$ on a new one.
