I got a call from the shop building Olive's new motor and the mechanic asked me for the diameter of the rod and block bearing surfaces. I have the journal diameters but he needs the OD sizes where the bearings fit onto. The factory manual does not state this info and I cannot actually think why he would need it except to be able to calculate bearing play...

Anyone ?

Somebody with an open block may be able to help if they had the caps and the right measurement equipment.

I can get you the rod big end diameters(where the bearings go) but I cant help you with the block dimensions.

Thanks brother that would be helpful. The only reason I can think he would need this is because of the clearance tolerances for the bearing caps. Never been asked this before.

I have my '79 block that I could measure. The block was align honed when I rebuilt it. Not sure if that makes a difference. I only have calipers to measure. Would that be accurate enough?
