Chevy 350 Main and Rod bearing clearences????

I have a chev 350 4-bolt 2-pc rear seal, out of a 77 camaro. I'm getting ready to put bearings back in. I have read a few articles on bearing clearances for main & rod bearings. I'm looking for a spec sheet or if anyone knows of a webpage that might have the correct tolerances for main, rod bearing clearances, and rod to rod clearance, torque spec for studs and bolts,have windage tray.Maybe a tip or two on selecting bearings. I know I could go get a book. Thought I would try
the forum first. This place has been good to me.

The crank is 10-10.

Someone forgot to use plastigauge the first time. Spun a rod bearing and chewed the rest. Under 300 miles on a balanced bottom end. The engine only saw 5900rpm twice. I'm back to another crank and a new set of bearings. And a nice set of micrometers, bore gauges and telescoping gauges.


Any help on this would be appreciated.
