WD 45 Crankshaft trimmed but why?

I have a WD45 that I am tinkering with, and while inspecting the crankshaft I found that someone had ground off some material on corners by the rear throw. Does anybody have an idea why they would have done that? By the way the crank and bearings are in excellent shape. Thanks,

i would tend to think ac is right . the only way to balance a wd ,wd45 or d17 crank is to do it externaly take some weight off one side of the fly wheel and add some to one side of the front pullley then balance the pressure plate to neutral. a hundred pound flywheel will kill a internal balance job if its not dealt into the equation to.

Was probably welded. #4 is a good place to break them.

Someone may have tried to balance the crank?
