Mine are shark-toothing, but my bottom bracket is a square-tapered, pressed-in, Klein-installed one which I'm told can't be removed except by Klein.
Know where I can get cranks to fit this bb? I'm told old Dura-Ace would fit. I'm looking for 172.5 arms.

By shark-toothing I assume you mean that the teeth on your chainrings are worn. All you need is new chainrings. Just measure the bolt circle diameter to be sure that you get rings that will fit (probably 130mm shimano pattern).

If you want new cranks I'd contact Klein or a Klein dealer and get the correct info. You don't want to invest in a new crankset and later find out that they can't maintain the bottom bracket. It won't last forever.
