    Not an easy find anymore even within miles of where they were made, good luck.

    Should still be able to buy crankshaft kit(crank w/rod and main bearings) from auto parts store. I checked Oreillys and AutoZone websites for the crank kit and it seems to come up as still being available.

    Also, you may want to try a local crankshaft repair shop. Most have reground cranks in stock to swap out when someone brings a core back.

    I just picked up a bunch of BBB parts from a guy up in Orangevile, CA (near Sacramento). I didn't take the crank because I didn't need it and it looked like it needed to be turned down anyways. If you were able to drop by he'd probably give you the thing just to be rid of it, but I know that's pretty far away for you. If you're interested I can ask him or give you his number!
