put the crank in a garbage bag with only the clutch end poking through a tight hole and use a thin cut off disc in an angle grinder. go slow and even cool it with water from a spray bottle to keep it from heating up. clean it up and chamfer with a grinding disc or even hand files and then carefully remove the bag so as not to contaminate the big end of the rod.

you could also put the old bearing back on to use as a cutting guide but it gets harder to seal off this way. no need to be pretty here, just get the length of the stub close to the width of a standard bearing.
