If I am not mistaken they can be turned up to 50 thousandths and you can get bearings for proper clearances... I know they can be turned 25 thousandths for suer because I have a crank turned that far with matching bearings. I beleive my machinist told me he could go 50 over if necessary... So maybe it is salvagable...

For clarification purposes my crank is a D16Z6 that is turned...

I think much past .050 you run into going past the hardend steel layer.

.046 is a Baaaad Spin fur sure... If this is for a boosted application or a built N/A motor (non stock) I would likely trash the crank and get a different one... Even if they can turn it .050 and get a bearing to match you would still be running a compromised crank...

On the other hand, if your just rebuilding the engine for daily commute the the turned crank should be fine...

Not sure what they charge to turn a crank where you are but here in Arkansas its about $85 - $125 to get one turned plus the cost of bearings... I am sure you can get a better shape crank for less $$$

the "coating" is often gone before the second owner gets the car...

iirc, oe crank can be turned once only. how much is a normal turn? idk, never had an issue where i had to turn one.

imo, junk the crank and get a used one for cheap. iirc the one i got for my y7 build was 60+ shipping. it came from cali or az to the east coast, so total it was like 100-110.
