£60 for a useable crank assembly seems reasonable to me, given that a new con rod and big end is £125 plus fitting.

You could probably get one for that but like sunny says the shafts would probably be bent and the big end would probably be shot .even if they weren't it probably wouldn't be true so I'd maybe lower your expectations a little.😆.Good luck though. What's up with the one in the engine you have?

What's 7/16 in mm again?
