My machinist just mic'd the crank and doesnt have the real good mic's to do the actual test. He said to just get Standard bearings however everything I read on here is saying I should take it to a machinist to do the real expensive mic testing. Can anyone come to my house and help me with it? Im in need! LOL
Not 100% positive.. But why would you need different rod bearings? When you bore the motor you are just opening the cylinder walls more. And the position head size is increased. But nothing changes with the rod or the crank. So I would think that you would not need to get anything but standard..

But we will let someone who knows for sure answer your question..
