'53 DC Crankshaft measurements

I need to have the crank throws measured so that I can have new connecting rod bearings made. Should I take the crank out of the tractor to have it miked or have someone make a service call out to measure it? How difficult is it to remove the crankshaft from the engine? How do I know if the crank is still ok to use or if it needs replaced? How expensive would it be to replace the crankshaft?

Any help from you veterans would be much appreciated.

Craig, have someone experienced in measuring crankshafts, come out & measure your crankpins. Add .0015-.003" to that measurment & have your connecting rods made that size. Beware of an out of round or barrell shaped crankpin, these will allow too much variation in oil clearence, even on the same rod bearing. Taking the crank out is a big job & would likely force you to replace & resize the main bearings, along with the rods. I imagine a reconditioned crankshaft (no rods or mains) would cost $250-$350, maybe more.
If the crankpins measure straight & round enough (not more than .0015") variation, that would be the best way to go. That variation factor can enlarge, depending on your expectations as to life & how you use it. Good luck, Bruce
