Well, the machine shop said hat the crank is OK, the worst wear is .002 on the journals. There are fine lines, but they're not bad. He said I "could" run the crank as is, but I won't get 150000 miles out of it like a new one would.
Now, a crank will cost me $260, rings, bearings, oil pump, timing set and gaskets will run me another $365.00. After taxes, it's about $650 or so. Then, I still have to assemble it. I can get a reman engine for about $1200 longblock, or $700 shortblock. I have to decide what I want to do. I'm going to keep this Explorer till it rots. I have too much in it to sell now.
