The first thing you want to do is have your crank magged and polished, and talk to the machinist whether or not what they are seeing suggests that you take it first under.

Cool

magged and polished you mean "magnafluxed" to check for cranks right, ok well what will polishing do and will my local machine shop beable to send it out to do this?

I was reading some of your older posts on the bbs.legacy centeral by the infomous matt monson and it sais i can just drop the bearings in no need to plastic gauge them as long as i dont have it macined out. I think im just going to use ACL race bearins from ebay.

One of my friends told me to look into something called "rock pistons" dose anyone have any info on them?

Or

what will i need to make this into a ej22t stroker engine??

Going to try and make that bottem end power

Taking things I have said in the past out of context can be a dangerous practice. The difference between my remarks and your situation is that you clearly said that your rod bearings looked pretty bad. That would have me measuring the rod journals for wear. I did assume that you would find them worn and at the bare minimum requiring a fresh polishing. There's also a chance that you will need to cut them first under, and your opening post makes it sound like you might not be able to make that judgment on your own, and thus the suggestion that you consult with a machinist.

Yes, Magged = magnafluxxed. There's no point in skipping that step if you have gone to the trouble of taking a crank to a machine shop. And they will do the polishing in house. That's what they do. They don't send it out or they aren't in fact a machine shop, or at least not a full service one...

You need to get a manual if you are going to do this. The best option is to Subscribe to SOA's tech site and dump the manuals. If that's too much money for you get a Hayne's. It's an acceptable second source for the information you are going to need to do this properly.

be sure to price a new crank before you do anything else. A new crank may cost you about the same as the machine shop work.

What kind of rates are you paying at the machine shop? I've never seen one come even close to the $375+ a new crank would cost you. Or did you mean a good used crank?

My shop charges $80 to turn a crank, $150 if they have to bend it back into shape.
