    you have to take the old ones out and se what color they are. And as far as I know that is the ONLY way to figure out.

    Unless your extremely familiar with the block the only way I would know is to get a Haynes/Chiltons manual. It'll have the layout and numbering/coloring of the bearings in there.

    NO....... the only way to tell is to take them out of the motor. From the HONDA factory they came with different bearings, because of slightly different journal sizes.

    Yeah and the Chiltons should take that into account and tell you which bearing goes on which bank.

    ok get your crank journals turned and get aftermarket bearings from a machine shop, or just buy the green ones(majority of the ones that were used) and hope for the best.

    I see no color on the caps ,he said only the bearings where diffrent colors 2 green 2 yellow 1 black ok this solve the Main bearing PRoBLem execpt for the order..

    I think C = Green ....D=yellow B=Black
    now the CDCDB start from the water pump side and end facing the Flywheel.


    Im 75 percent sure this is the way it goes..



    Now i need to find out the Rod Bearing Colors and Order.

    you can't just buy any bearings.... you need to buy honda bearings. that companywill guve you some "general" bearings that will fit but not perfectly. If you can find out where those bearings went it will really help you, and that would be the proper way of doing it.
