    If its matching rods/crank, I have been told that there are codes for the correct bearing engraved on rods...not sure about the crank journals. Thats what I would do and plasti-gauge it. Are there any color on the old bearings? That might work too.

    best way to do it is to use a micrometer on it and get measurements, but there is a code on the block and on the crank. there is a lot on info on it. just google it. also many people will just by acl, king or clevite bearings and plastigage them

    I used ACL which are basically a "green" size.
