I hope you guys can help. I know this is not for the FE engine. But I am having a difficult time locating a crank, crank kit or complete engine for my 1973 Ford dump truck. It has a 361 cubic inch. 1 3/4 inch front snout. I would appreciate any help! It had a rod knocking and already has been turned 20/20. Thanks

Is there a reason that the crank is not regrindable now?
As long as you have a decent crank grinder there is nothing wrong with .030 or .040 under.
you finger nail is about .020 thick and grinding that much off will not hurt the strength ( .020 on the radius and .040 on dia) , but you need to have the radius prepared right so it will not be weak there.
the added thickness of the undersize bearing is added in the steel backing and not in the babbit overlay.
