If the whole oiling system; tank, lines, cooler, was not removed and thoroughly cleaned when the engine was "rebuilt", this will keep happening. Oil coolers and tanks must be ultrasonically cleaned.

I must confess,.......after 30+ years, I've never seen a bent crankshaft unless it had been dropped on the floor.

Typically, people do not always resize the rods and thats a major cause of rod bearing failures.
