I got a D16z6 and I'm not sure which main/rod bearings to get but these are the letters I see on the block are B,A,B,B,C and for the Crank B3, 2,4,2,3 for main bearings.

And for the rod bearings I see B3,D,B,B that is on the crank. And 4,4,4,3 on the rods. Do I take these numbers and letters to Honda and they will figure it out or do i tell them? Sorry guys, First time buying bearings. ;D

And what other bearings should i buy other than the main/rod bearings? And how do i select which bearings to get from ACL since they are different than Honda OEM? Is it true that they are "universal" and will fit?


Here is a chart posted on another site. It does not include the codes you ask about but I believe your Helms will have it. If you do not have one I highly suggest you get one. It's the best money you can spend on your car.
