I heated up the bend in my crank and bent it out a little to allow clearance very easily. Get it red hot in the bend and put a big wrench around it or big vice grips on it and bend it slowly
Bam let it sit and cool down and ur set. maybe throw some rust paint on the burnt spot after u clean it up a little bit if its black
Chrome just polish up
