I expect the crank will not need to be ground. I've only rebuilt 5 engines: 2 BMW airheads, a vw type 1, a type 4 and a 152 for a IHC Scout. Only the 152 needed work on the crank. That engine was beyond belief how worn it was. The other 4 were fairly well treated with proper oil changes.

Most likely I'll only need oversize on the case side. I'll only know when I get the crank out and measure the journals and look at the overall condition of all the parts.
