long board,

You can test this for yourself if you have a wrench that fits the fan nut (in your factory tool roll). You should also see if someone in your area will let you turn their 911 motor over by hand so you have a basis for comparison. Putting you location in your profile might let others in your area come to your assistance.

Short of splitting the case and remachining it, crank bind is not going to fix itself. It may turn easier once the bearings have worn away enough to make enough clearance to stop the rubbing.

In answer to your initial question "Who do you trust?"; myself and anyone who's dealt with MM much will tell you "Trust anyone over MM." What sets MM apart from an incompetent shop is that these guys must have a clue by now on what needs to be done but they choose not to do it. That crank was probably hard to turn as soon as they bolted the case together and they decided to put it together anyway.
