I had a feeling I would become conflicted concerning how far to take the Bottom end.
I fitted rollers .0002 over in the case races, .0002 for the female rod and .0004 for the male rod.
everything meets the clearances in the book but one case is slightly larger than the other. neither will take a .0004 roller but by measuring, I can tell one is at least .00015 larger.
I don't have line honing equipment.
I bought new rods, bearings, cages, and a pin thinking I might bring everything back to 0 but the new rods need to be honed to take the std rollers.
So, I have to decide on staying with what I have currently fitted, which feels pretty good, or start over by sending off my cases, Rods, and bearings to someone with the equipment and expertise to line hone, lap and fit my rollers.
That cracked case just scares me to death. They obviously held it by the casting rather than the insert, but still.
I think I will think on this for a bit.
