You mean you didn`t lube the bearings upon assembly? What did you expect them to do without lube? The oil from the pump has to travel a good ways before it gets to all points in the engine, especially the crank, by the time it got there you had already cooked it. The clearance between the bearing and the crank is very very close, the crank NEVER touches the bearings because they are riding on oil, oil is a liquid and it, like all liquids cannot be compressed. I see your only 16 but please by all means LEARN before you try anything like this again.
