Still waiting. I went to my crankshaft pile. I have a 425/400 used stickshift crankshaft that is 0.020/0.020 under already. I cleaned it up. It has a few "thumbnail feel" lines but seems okay. I'll have to do some serious mic'ing of it. It has a pilot bearing already in it. The bearing is magnetic, sintered iron maybe? I tried a spare Muncie main input shaft and it seems snug. It supposedly was in a Toronado 425 engine that was replaced with a big gunner 455 but who knows for sure, too many years ago. I was wanting to start fresh with this 431 (425 + 0.030 over) engine. I may keep waiting, I have a lot of my plate presently.
