Dropped a valve and have a question!!

My Question is whether I need to replace the rod and crankshaft? If I don't have to split the case I don't want to.
Any advice would be helpful.
PS great forums learned alot.

Get it replated and rehoned - not too expensive to do.
For your rod/crankshaft inspection, pull up/down on the shaft, there should be NO play, side to side play is allowed, don't worry if you see a blued spot on the crank that's factory.
