Yes, you can get over size bearings up to certain tolerances for just about anything. You will need to know the exact sizes of all the journals, how much you need to gain in each ( in thousandths) and if journals are identical within tolerances. If not you will need a good auto machinist to cut the crank to the next smaller size. When all is ready, go to Federal Mogals website and order your bearings or have your machinist do it.
