Default Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

Just for my own edumication since I am not well versed in machining an engine. I just want to be clear that 'fluidizing' the bearings means setting the bearing clearance to basically zero and (via the electric motor) 'melting' or 'wearing' the bearings to the correct size using the crank? This way they don't have to cut the bearings to size? Maybe it is just the term that is throwing me off.

I also am assuming that this is the best way to set the bearings (if you can) so that each bearing matches its individual journal/rod?
