1978 Yamaha DT 250 crank pin

Just joined site. Putting motor back together. Bought all in a box. Need to press in a new crank pin that holds rod. Bearing went bad and damaged rod. That is why it was in a box when I bought it. Clymer says not serviceable . Any body got any pointers?

That's a job for a professional. It's not a job you can do in your garage with simple tools. It takes a press, a jig and dial indicators - it has to be trued.
There are shops that do this - Google it. Believe me, this is not something you want to try to do yourself.
