I am attempting to rebuild 1200 engine and need to order bearing. got a good used crank and connecting rods with pistons. Can't read no. and letter code on connecting rods to order bearing. N eed green bearings for mains but can't read connecting rods. Any tricks or secrets to finding right bearings. Do I need to hone cylinders if I am using old rings. engine has 50,000 miles on here. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

You may need to "mike" the rods and crank to get the appropriate size bearing numbers.



|ANY| good machine shop should be able to tell you this information or an engine rebuilder could do. Conversely you could go to a pawn brokerthat sells tools and get a used micrometer and make the measurement yourself.



Someone will be along with better information and probably a better way but some years back I was working on an engine with a custom crank and thats how we determined what size bearing s to order.





Good luck
