So some of you may know that I have recently spun a connecting rod bearing or two and its time to fix it. My question is what size bearings do I need? I know that the main concern is oil clearance. I looked online and I found a specification of 0.0011-0.0027. I have purchased a set of plastigage to help determine the clearance I have. My concern is do I check the clearance with no bearing and then subtract oil clearance from the reading to get the bearing size? Or do I need to get a standard set of bearings first and use them with the pastigage to see if I an oversized bearing is needed and the size required?
