To get to your goal of "reliable", build it correctly and enjoy the bike. $500 for a "new" assembled Ural crank is about as cheap as it gets. No way would I buy a cheaper used 650 crank. Nor would I trust some private seller in eastern Europe his is brand new or that it's even for your motor. Sorry you got in over your head... it happens. Time now to decide to live with what you got and pony up whatever money/work it takes to meet your reliable rider goal or it's time to punt and write it off as a learning experience. A used 750 motor transplant is an option but not cheaper than a $500 crank. Rework your budget/goals and time allotment. Correctly rebuilding a 650 motor won't be a grand resale value plan but it will give you a sweet running very useable and fun Ural. Prioritize and good luck.

I had a great experience with Metal Rescue to deal with a rusty tank.
