    what kind of bearing's are you buying?? do not! i repeat do not use auto parts store bearings they are junk!!! they are not balanced for your motor. check the back of your block and it has numbers and letters for the mains. rod bearing are on the crank. a haynes manual will tell you this.just buy one for a 92-95..im sure the 88-91 have this as well.the codes are standard for all honda motors.once youve decoded this go to the honda parts store and order those color bearings. be sure to place them in the appropriate spots, be liberal with the assembly lube, keep up with the orientation of rod caps and the placement of pistons...while your at replace your rings as well.

    If you got aftermarket bearings and they are ACLs you will be fine as they make some damn good bearings. You want to plastiguage all of them and make sure that they all are to spec. You can get plastiguage at any auto-parts store.
