63chevy ok that true

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.

63chevy 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.

63chevy ok thxs for the reply

eloc431962 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 ?

63chevy the main bearing ,the crank has .1000 lip on it, a machinist can grind
it right?
