Question Crank Bearings???

Im new to powerstrokes for the most part, and have been looking for a 95-97 f250 7.3L and I found one but it needs new crank bearings. I cannot find anything about this anywhere online. Help please?

Did it spin a bearing? Did the current owner pull it apart and see that? If it spun a bearing, then you'll probably have to do a rebuild, polish the crank journals and get new bearings to fit what you polished off the journals.

When does he hear it, or does he know for sure he spun a bearing?

in my opinion, you would have to pull the engine, pull the crank and have it miked....if anything in there has turned blue, it is JUNK...... crank and block both..... I do not believe in turning cranks, or re-furbishing blocks that have had a spun crank to the turn blue point....just asking for trouble lateron....

Is there anyway to tell if it is worth getting without pulling anything out? I dont want to spend a bunch of money on repairs.

If you do the labor yourself, it won't cost you anything but time. If you pull the motor, put it on a stand and pull the oil pan and check for any rod clatter.
