Well no ,not accurately .You could measure from the center of the piston pin to the top of the crankshaft throw if you could squeeze something between the rod and the side of the crank throw .Or measure top crank,top pin and deduct half the pin diameter .

You might be able to squeeze a set of thin outside calipers between the side of the rod to determine crank pin diameter .Just a guess ,I've never done it .
