Are you sure it's a Sprite engine? As far as I know the A30/A35 were 
powered by the same type of engine, but a little smaller. The crankshaft 
is not the same, the bearing journals are a little smaller. Anyway, you 
should be able to grind it and use oversize bearings. But you need to 
take it apart and examine the damage first.

Best, Per
