What I would want to know ... can you install a new connecting rod ... with piston and rings ... from the bottom?
You should be able to measure the thickness of the connecting rod ... where it is worn ... and compare this to the thickness of a new connecting rod.
If the wear is actually on the crankshaft, then you aren't going to have a simple repair.
... Just an idea ... I don't know if this would actually work though.
