Chamfered bearings or not?

Ive bought a Lunati crankshaft for my CSB 350. Its an older model but in mint condition. The previous owner seems unsure if it needs chamfered bearings or not (youd think hed know...). Now Ive heard that theres a way of telling this. Can anyone tell me how please?

Compare the journal radii with a stock crank. If the Lunati crank has a noticeably bigger radius, use the chamfered bearing. Or just use the chamfered bearing regardless.

BTW, some manufacturers are eliminating the chamfer and are just making the bearing a narrrower instead; accomplishes the same purpose.

Thanx! So I can use chamfered bearings regardless but not the other way around?
