    If you want the best send it to Falicon, let them rebuild it and get one of their rods and let them suggest if it needs new crank halves. Not cheap but they know what they're doing.jmo

    Ken O'CONNOR Racing rebuilt my original crank. He supplied the pro x rod, crank pin , washers and both rod bearings. 205 dollars shipped back to me last winter.

    You would need to press the crank apart and back together.
    Then true it.
    205 seems pretty reasonable.

    I have Hot Rods Cranks in all of my motors. I send mine to Jim Zimmerman in Montana.
