Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck 4WD Front Wheel Bearing & Hub Assembly fo
The crank is not that bad (mainly the middle is a bit rough) and the top side of the rods are fine but the caps are scored. Is it ok if i just sand down the crank with some emery cloth and put in new caps and bearings?
Get some plastigauge at the auto store and measure the bearing to shaft clearance. You may need an oversize bearing if there is extended wear.

You need to find out why the bearings failed in the first place before you even start to repair the crank, we do 'super finishing' on a crank grinding machine here in NZ, these are normally only owned by engine reconditioning shops. make sure the crank is running true in a set of vee blocks, or a lathe, use a runout DTI gauge to check for this.
