that's what i was afraid of, i might've passed on this crank, may be a core or an unfinished reman in progress? 
IMO it needs to be seen by the nearest crank doctor for evaluation, that thrust surface looks like Joe chowdered on it with his sawzall. 
i don't see how it's even measurable?

So I finally got some space in the garage cleared and all the accessories removed from the engine. I have the a/c compressor suspended from a wood board with some tie wire so I don't have to unhook the likes and, er, properly evacuate the refrigerant. I hope to unhook the transmission and exhaust pipes tonight and pull the engine tomorrow morning.

One question for when I complete the work and put the engine back together:

I bought a water pump for it a couple of years ago, but the pump that was on it was good, turns well, is quiet, and doesn't leak, so I left it alone. Those properties still apply. But given what a pain it is to get to the pump, and also given the spotty quality of replacement parts, would I be best advised to stick with the current pump or put on the new one? The brand of the new pump is "Airtex."

When I replaced my timing chain on my LTD ll, the old water pump, like yours, was still in good serviceable condition. I put on a new water pump anyway but kept the original. It seemed like a good idea at the time as everything was already apart. The choice is yours but I'd swap it out anyways.
