Default Re: First time adjusting rod and mains

Chris in WNC touches on what I feel is the easiest and most accurate way to adjust your main/ rod bearings --- the "go/ no go" method using heavy duty aluminum foil in the place of Plastigauge.

Search Mike V. Florida's 10/31/2010 post "interference fitting of bearings" for a detailed description of this method.

I adjusted main and rod bearings twice in my first engine using the "go/ no go" method with heavy duty aluminum foil and got great results. Helped me get 40,000 miles out of that somewhat worn engine.

Without a doubt this is the easiest and most accurate way to do what I feel is a tedious job.
