If you try and polish the crank it may start knocking.
I guess you could give it a try and see what happens. The crank and rod are no good the way they are. After you polish them up check and see the clearance you got.
Also while you got it all apart you better check to make sure the crank's not bent.

The acid will NOT eat on the steel...no worries there. Keep applying acid until all the aluminum is gone. Then you just use some fine emery cloth to dress the journal. I would clean up the crank, then check the fit in the case. If too tight, then carefully ream, or hone. If it's not tight, I'd leave the case alone & use it as-is.
