|bigdog7373||The lobes have nothing to do with the bearings. They are very cheap and not hard to replace. Worth the time and money to prevent another failure.|

ya thats would make sence,the lobes on the cam really
arent that bad with measurement

|bigdog7373||Also, to add to what cole said, i would replace the cam bearings as well. Excessive clearances in the cam bearings causes low oil pressure and may have contributed to the main bearing failure.|

I have went in and did just the bottom end without any problems. You will need to take the crank to a machine shop to make to call on it. Just go ahead and do rod's and mains and a new oil-pump while you are in there thats what i would do if everything checks out ok. JMO Someone else might say different, But i have done this more then once without any issues.
How many miles do you think the engine has on it ?
|02-06-2011 01:11 PM|
the main bearing ,the crank has .1000 lip on it, a machinist can grind
|02-06-2011 01:05 PM|
Are you talking about the rod or main bearings went out ?
