I search around and find the spec's anywhere from 0.0013 to 0.0030 as being OK. and the ole plasti-gage method is not exactly error free. I figure if the copper is showing out then nows the time to slide in bearings with the pan being down. Yet again maybe I leave the sleeping dog lie?, the thing has 75 lbs oil pres at speed and about 25-30 hot. 15-40 rottella.
Original bearings with 95 thousand miles, I think I am gonna pull some more caps and check it out closer. Anyhow one thing is for sure they are tiny little caps.
