Default Crank grinding?

I just received a 95 carry all with a non-running engine(290fe). I pulled apart and found rod snapped off crank. This of course scored crank a little. Mr dilema is I've had no luck finding a local shop to grind crank. Does/has anyone had a crank machined for the 50 over rod. I prefer to keep this rebuild as cheap as possible until I can set aside funds for a clone or BB swap so any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Never mind. Just noticed counter balance journals are shot. Now need to decide on rebuilt engine or swap. Anyone have a used 290 laying around?

I have access to an FE 290 motor in good condition. It runs 155 psi compression hot, no smoke issues and is clean. It's from a 1998 CC that got wrecked when the cart rolled out of a trailer on its way home and the owner forgot to tether the cart on the trailer. I was waiting on another project cart to install it on but if you are in dire need its yours for $450 complete + shipping.

Chris.

Thanks for the offer, but that would be a cw rotation.

Tom @ Carts Parts Plus has engine laying around from his big block swaps. He has always been very good to me. I built my whole cart using almost all of my parts from him. Give Tom a call he might talk you into a big block kit which you wouldn't regret btw.

Thanks Highrollin. I'm probably going the clone route to keep cost down.
