    Crankshaft questions

    Hey yall, so last season I blew the number 2 (lack of oil) with that I have ever the motor torn down and out and the block is good and it seems the crank, rods are ok. Thoughts on should I not chance it and either replace the crank or just go ahead and rebuild full top end? The piston didn't chunk off and fall down into the block, mostly scarred up cylinder wall and crushed the rings and lastly scarred up the piston itself. Will upload some in a bit of what it looks like.

    If the rods are tight with no play and the rest of the bearings spin free with no noise I would re-use it.

    all this also pay close attention to how it feels when spinning. Sometimes u can feel a very slight ruffness in bearings when you turn it. This ruffness no matter how slight is an early sign of failure.
