Crankshaft

Cleaned up the crank and measured everything 3 or 4 times.
Mains are consistently 59.985, and rods are consistently 54.975.
By consistent, I mean within +/- 0.002mm.
That puts the mains near the center of spec, and the rods near the low end.

There is nothing I can feel with a fingernail.
The few specs in the photos are some dust or lint.
To my eye, the surfaces look reusable, but I'd appreciate input.
I plan on getting coated bearings so perhaps that will keep the rod clearance in an acceptable range.
