    After an event like that, I imagine that it's going to have to go to the machine shop to be turned anyways, so I would think they could remove it.

    Good work diving into the repair! It's easy to decide to put such a repair off until later. I agree, the machine shop will handle the bearing as part of refurbishing the crank, wouldn't worry about it.

    The connecting rod is potentially a bigger problem than the crankshaft; how does the big end of the rod look?

    Had an international 345 do something similar. I worked the crank by hand with a file and stone to get it smooth (or close) after peeling the bearing off. I reassembled with new bearing to see if everything else was okay (rings, tranny) and that it would be worth rebuilding. About 15 minutes and I could tell that rod bearing was deteriorating, but I confirmed all else worked. It's a bit extra work but I thought worth the effort. You can make it smooth enough for a short run even in the truck, but the crank needs turned to do it right.
