The top picture is a closeup of the end of the crank that was spinning in the bearing.  If i was confident in the big end bearing, i could probably score this area, and press on a new bearing. 

When i pushed the crank out the opposite side of the case (after splitting), the bearing came out of the case and stayed on the crank.  The case looks good on both sides.  But, man are those bearings tight in the case. I'm wondering how in the world i can press this thing back together.

What is the best method for this? I have seen some people put the bearings on the crank first (easy if you freeze the crank, and heat the bearings).  But, how then would i press the crank into the case half, and then put the two halves together?
