The rods will be at .0017 but the mains are a little different story. .0014, .0017, .0016, .0018, .0024 as they sit now. I really dont feel like buying a whole set of std size to fix #5 so I'll see how this treats me. The std size would bring that down to .0014 as all the bearings will be +.001 clearance.

Swap a half shell from the .0014 and .0024 bearings.

They're the same bearing, how would that change it?

5 is a thrust bearing.... How would you swap it anyway?
Interesting. I had .007 .009 .008 .001 .0017 or something like that. Not looking at the sheet right now. Anyway thrust bearing was much looser. Also found out today that my block was not machined round for the pistons

Ah good point.

If it was not, it would work. If they were the same bearing they would measure the same, right?

I'm kind of worried about that too. I haven't been able to find a torque plate yet and I refuse to pay $350+ to use it once.

Abooth - if it was 1-4 or a rod bearing then yea I could just use a +.001 halve and a std halve.
