Finally, it's a roller again!

Agreed, but I always clamp them in between two large washers in a vice, then wind a rubber strap wrench (Craftsman) around the body and see if it rotates at all in either/both directions.Bob Matthews said:Just looks like a casting defect to me and not a crack.
I'd use it as is without hesitation.
Doesn't have to be a rubber strap wrench, you can wrap the rotor with almost anything to protect it, and use a large set of chan-L-lock pliers (water pump pliers)gortnipper said:Don't have a rubber strap wrench let alone a lathe. Will try and figure something else out.

Tried this trick which worked well. Too well. The rotor broke loose with not much torque. Less than 15-20 ft lbs. by my guess and having just some the clutch nut to 40 lbs.
Not finishing the primary this weekend.
