    Crank Condition Opinions?

    I tore down an engine from a ski I bought that had a broken cam chain. It had been rebuilt once before I bought it. Whoever rebuilt it did not replace the connecting rod bushings on one of the pistons which caused some wear on the crank journal. I need to know whether this crank needs work or can I just put some bushings in and run it as is:

    In addition, that rod will need to be replaced/re-sized. Be glad is was not a main bearing....case would be junk
