There's got to be more to that story than you're telling - if he bought a messed up crank from Advanced why did he install it? And RockAuto doesn't sell crank bearings singly, but rather in complete sets.I won't lie - they do not have everything. But for aftermarket parts you can buy at Advanced, Autozone, ORileys... I would rather purchase online due to the price difference and the service of RockAuto is amazing so far for me and my friend. He recently ordered two crank bearings and 1 was missing. They overnighted the missing unit the next day. He bought a crank from Advanced and this is the reason he is having to rebuild the engine... go figure. I'm betting RockAuto would pay for his engine if they sold him a messed up crank!
You can't tell anything about the metal underneath. It passed inspection from us too... the block was tanked, things kept clean, high volume oil pump. Keep in mind its a 302 v8. Just a small upgraded setup with new rods/pistons, did not OD any bearings. New crank was not OD either... which looks like they added metal and polished but something didn't turn out right. fordem, the new part was order by part#. I can't confirm or deny what he ordered was a set but it was missing one out of it.There's got to be more to that story than you're telling - if he bought a messed up crank from Advanced why did he install it?

Good to hear. My friend once complained about a pair of parts he ordered. Believe it was tie rod ends, one was a different color and style. Hes a tad OCD and they ended up requesting photos and sending him the one he liked better and told him to keep the other. Until I get a bad experience like I recently did with AutoZone returns for just a simple belt I will continue to order online for the customer service presented and price. Told me I couldn't return belt at the 1 Autozone and preferred me to take it to the one I bought it at... yeah right!Agree with ya CODY on Rock Auto. Started calling NAPA and O'Reilly and ended up at The Rock for almost 25% less. Gates timing belt, Fel Pro cam cover set, cam and crank seals and 2 Wix oil filters on the way. They use FedEx and USPS priority.
They are now!RockAuto is not known very well for body parts
