Was wondering if there are any easy fix for a bad rod bearing ? Dont have the extra cash to do full rebuild :(

Might want to determine what caused it to go bad. Assuming that's the only one and it didn't ruin the crank, couldn't you just put a new rod bearing on that particular one? Probably have to get some plastigage and several size rod bearings to determine which one provides the correct fit.
