"Has anyone considered having one chromed and reground? Just saying Dan, I'd first consider buying an OEM used part first than any newly made part, regardless if ten days or ten years experience. I am not sure India, Turkey, or Brazil are making parts anymore as Cheena has taken all business away.
Given the option of using a new aftermarket crankshaft I would not even think about trying to build .080 up on an OEM crank crank just to avoid a non-USA producer. If push came to shove I could likely regrind it .010 under for less than it would cost to resurrect a beat out OEM. Building up crankshafts is not cheap and generally reserved for situations where replacements are not available. But that is just me and you may feel differently. Bottom line is you do have that option if you want it.
I have plenty of boxes of N parts that say country of origin is Turkey/India in my inventory and I think they are now the major players. Again, just my perception based on my purchasing experience..
