He has now has a new engine with a two bearing crank.
Isnt that a 2 bearing crank in a 3 bearing case with the middle bearing hacked out?

The original three bearing crankcase was a little far gone to 'hack out the middle bearing' so he replaced it with a two bearing crankcase and new crank.

He had a two bearing crank before it broke

You are correct of course- I was confusing two failures.  Huh

The one under discussion was a two bearing ADI process crank- he wanted to build a three bearing engine with new crankshaft but the only three bearing crank available was another ADI shaft and he wouldn't use this.
He now has a replacement two bearing crankcase with a Phoenix crank.
