    Don't chance it if you have doubts and don't buy a used crank unless you have seen it run.

    Since you might buy a new crank, might as well have it true and weld...

    Truing a crankshaft means correcting runout/wobble on the crankshaft. Welding the crank keeps the crank throws from spinning/twisting out of phase
