I tried really, really hard to ride my R60/5 home about three miles with no/little oil pressure after I had been sold the wrong, thicker o-ring for the pump cover and was able to very lightly polish the crank, put in new bearings and had no issues.

Make sure to buy (and use) some plastigauge if you suspect or change the rod bearings.
