Default Cracnkshaft expanding

yo guys, ive recently noticed that my clutch bell bearings get harder and harder to come off. and today, i checked the clutch setup, and found out that the screw holding the clutch bell back was missing. i decided to take off the clutch bell for further inspection (car wasnt idling properly). it took me about 10 minutes to get 2 bearings off the crankshaft. i noticed that only the end of the shaft is wider than the rest. why is this? is it because of heat? i need to figure this out before getting new clutch shoes, since 2 of my old ones cracked in half.

GET AN OS .21 V-SPEC!!! lol, seriously though, why not just get a new engine since you constantly are having problems with that .26.

This occurs with bad shimming and tightening the end screw too much.
