Melvin,
The cap length in it's self by the book are.
Rear 3-1/8"
front 1-15/16"

centre 2-1/8" babbitted, and yes the early parts books stipulate "babbitted"

Many re-builds over the years end up with a centre bearing cap too short, the centre bearing is as a rule the one that wears out first, If I can't find the right cap then I flange the babbitt to the right length of block and crank.
