Did the ghetto replace the rod bearings only fix today. Only big issue I had was one of the MBSP bolts heads rounded off and because of how soft and small they are I had to air hammer it's head off. I was impressed I didn't damage anything in the process.
It was number 4 that bit the dust although the other ones were showing their age. Oddly enough the #4 rod journal was in the best shape out of any of them. I'm guess in self machining it somehow polished itself. Only rod journal one didn't pass the fingernail test, I'd wrap that up to it being first in line for debris. I only bothered checking the oil clearance on 1 and 4 . 1 was ~.035mm and 4 was .050mm. I mineral spirited the oil passages the best I could to loosen any bearing flakes but most of them were at the bottom of the oil pan to start and I trust most of the remainder now live in my old oil filter. Crank play was nonexistent and if the engine didn't burn oil I'd trust the damn thing for another 50k if it doesn't **** the bed on cranking tomorrow.
Also I snapped an oil pan bolt at 50 in/lbs. **** those bolts.
