Anyone every try polishing a crank journal
with emery cloth and replaceing a spun rod
bearing? Any comments? I don't plan to run
the engine very much and was wondering if
it would last any time at all.

I had one about 10 years ago do that and I filed the crank emeried it up and put it back together. The guy that owned said it was a piece of junk and needed to be traeted like one. All he wanted to do was unload a load of manure and then he was going to sell it. He still has it motors never been pulled yet and he still says its a piece of junk and it runs almost daily on his hog farm. So if you get it true and polished good it should last quite a while.

when you get done, if it is round within .001 , dimensioned to spec (diameter), and not tapered bad side to side, you will be o.k.
