just got all my bottom end parts back from the shop and want to know my exact bearing clearances. both mains and rods. i tried plasti-gage but that seems like a guess at best. all i know is i have more than .002" on one main. that is all i checked with that system.
what is the procedure to measure the clearance?
also what should i be looking for as ideal. this is a 460 jet boat application. mild cam and stock heads. probably not over 415 HP and wont rev past 5500RPM unless i air the boat out. i do want to be able to hold 5k RPM for miles at a time however
thanks in advance
