turboSD,

As Steve said, these journals are hardened. This is a diesel engine with 21 to 1 compression, don't even think about reusing the crankshaft without re-hardening the journal. If you do, you will be tearing it down all over again soon, or pulling out the engine to sell it as junk iron.

Good luck,
