GENERAL The crankcase must be separated to service the crankshaft, cylinder, piston/connecting rod and piston oil jet. Refer to procedures for crankcase separation. Mark and store the connecting rods, bearing caps and bearing inserts to be sure of their correct locations for reassembly. The crankpin and main journal bearing inserts are select fit and are identified by color codes. Select replacement bearings from the code tables. After selecting new bearings, recheck the oil clearance with a plastigauge. Incorrect oil clearance can cause major engine damage.
