Just finished the bearings. Here are some pics.

Brand new updated bearings with rod bolts.



Oil pump removed for access to all rods.



Crank journal with a nice mirror finish. They were all very clean with no scoring or heat marks.



New vs. Old bearings



Angle torquing the rod bolts for their final torque. This took a while because you have to stretch each rod bolt which requires you to torque each bolt 9 times.



They were all pretty good showing very little wear except for cylinder 2 top. This one had a small area wearing through the first layer. None of these showed signs of spinning as they all sat in their original positions.



I know the pic is upside down but deal with it

Overall the process was very easy. The main thing is to stay clean!!!!
