But you'll need a good machine shop to do the work. It has been done to diesel engine cranks for years, Early 855" Cummins engines with the taper nosed cranks had a problem with the snout breaking off and if the crank was in otherwise good condition the face of the crank would be machined off and drilled/tapped and a new snout would be made and installed then welded into place. If done right the repair was as strong if not stronger than the unbroken crank.

After my snout joined the bird gang I looked over the rest of the crank and found stress fractures in the journal areas. If all is good and someone fixes it that KNOWS what is going on you will be O.K.
