Spun bearing on stock ford crankshaft. Didnot tearupjournal to bad, but did black it. Should I try polishing it, turning it, or get another crankshaft? BIGG C

Take it to a crank shop and have them measure it.. and polish or grind it and check it for straight. you can grind a single journal and be ok. just have to remember to use the proper bearings is all. if its straight it shouldnt be a big deal to get back in order.

if its black it got very hot. chances are its cracked. a good american 4340 crank can take that abuse and not be cracked, but chances are if its cast or china forged then its junk. have it magged first.
