    well i have a total of 3 cars. That's basically my daily commuter and not planning on changing the engine to a B Series engine. I'll save that to my 91 CRX. :D But I am willing to fix that engine up for a daily commuter. But other than that. No i wont upgrade that car or whatsoever.

    Alot of guys at HondaTech and HMT discourage me on changing the bearings since im a beginner and all. But it's probably much easier than changing the whole engine itself. They told me that the hard part is measuring the clearance of the bearings. So if you can give me any info or any advice. I would greatly apprepicate it!

    Also I am not sure if it's really my bearings or not. Well basically my engine was knocking pretty hard after oil starvartion. The knock got louder as rpm increases and also notice in loss of power. It's more of a rattling noise than a knock.

    I'm also concerned that i might have scratch the crank.

    so whats the difference between crank, main, rod bearings? I'm confused? And where are each bearings located at? Wish i got a helm manual. It would be so much easier.

    Crank/main bearings = support the crankshaft in the block
    Rod bearings = support the rods on the crank.

    If you're asking questions like this and you don't even have a Helm manual, you really should NOT attempt replacing all your bearings. Hell, I don't even like dealing with it.
