If the crank doesn't break,you'll make it by the way you described it you have some crank flex or a warped crank,it probably won't take a lot more abuse.

Im with Rico on this one...No matter how good the crank looks when you take it down you better have it checked theres either a lot of flex going on from a rough track or the crank has a little warpage either way with out doing something it will brake.....Towman

Sounds like your block needs the line bore checked.

Here's something we do: We drop the crankshaft into place with the motor upside down (main caps off) and put a dial indicator on the center journals of the crank shaft. Anything less than .002 run out is probably ok. We picked this up from one of David Vissar's books. You might have a flex problem as some others have said or you might have a bent crank shaft. Fuel for thought!
