crank

actually, i did not check thrust. to be honest, ive been turning wrench for about 16 17 yrs, some profesionally, but this is only my second real hot rod engine ive built ( first was about 6 7 yrs ago, and i didnt get into the crank, 350 chev ) thats mainly why i choose this site, i see theres a huge amount of knowledge here. so if i post some dumb ques. regarding cranks, thats why. nah, i just assumed the way them bearings were spun around, going for the complete rebuild was the ticket, and i didnt really think about measuring much

Check the thrust surfaces. Also get the rods checked for round. A real good bit of insurance on a big block is to have new aftermkt rod bolts installed and sized.
