Crankshaft repairs start with crack testing in the magnetic crack detecting machine under ultraviolet light to ensure that they are free of any cracks, after which they are checked for alignment and ‘runout’ in the crankshaft grinding machine. Worn crankshafts are machined to the next factory specified undersize. The crankshaft main and bigend journals are measured and compared to the allowable journal undersizes to ensure that they can be repaired.
