Crankshaft - ‘64 Sedan Deville

Hello friends! I’m looking for a crankshaft for a 429 that will begin Grandpa’s Cadillac Restoration. I will be talking to a machine shop on Monday (fingers crossed). However, in the event I hear the second worst news possible, I thought I’d put some feelers out now. Thanking everyone in advance.  See More

"Thank you all for your thoughts. After talking with my father-in-law, I’ve decided to make sure I get it checked out with the local machine shop. There is a date stamp on the next bearing indicating it was rebuilt in ‘87."

"So, I broke down the engine last night and found that the rod bearings were stacked on top of one another. There were two grinding away on one side and none on the other. But on a good note, there’s no scarring, gouging or signs of wear. "
