        The crank was .010 under when he took it out of the engine, and the 
bearings had failed so spectacularly that the crank HAD to be 
re-ground, no question.  It's .020 under now.  Haven't talked to him 
since we got back from our house-hunting trip, so don't know what 
he's found out about the second failure.
