    Sorry to be so slow to respond. The price ($50) is for everything: crank, rods, .030" over pistons. These all came from a running engine.
    The crank is already 30/30 under so you'll need to take the mains and rod journals down to .040" under and get matching bearings. I'm told that .060" is the practical limit so further rebuilding is possible in the future. The crank snout has been roughed up by a bad dynamic balancer. Repairing this will likely require a sleeve. These sleeves are commonly used to correct the groove in the crank snout caused by the front seal. So the short answer is that you will need to have a competent machinist bring it up to spec.

    Hi, I noticed your ad about the crank, rods, and pistons and had a few questions if you don't mind.
    Is it still available?
    Are the rods and crank usuable to put in and run without major machining?
    Is the price 50 dollars for the whole ad or just by type of part? Such as 50 for rods and 50 for crank?
    Thank you for your time
    If I posted in the wrong spot it's because I'm still new to how this site works.
