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![post=505562]Quoted post[/post]

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.[post=505562]Quoted post[/post]
I would take the engine apart first to see what's going on before I spent $200-300 at Honda for new bearings... plus I would want to see which bearings I needed before spending money on a batch that could very well be all the wrong size.
If you did, then you need it machined, polished, then spec'd out for bearings that can't be found by using your service manual anymore- your crank and block's letter/number codes won't mean a damn thing after you polish 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.
