Some of the ball bearing fourth mains are loctited to the shaft, when the trans heats up it has to expand and if it can not go out the rear it will go forward and push on the thrust of the rear main or get into the magnets and field coil?

There is a std. size the crank is original but with crank grinding and spot grinding the radius they tend to grow, if your rods where std. width and your crank has been reground then you have some thing wider now, as Herm said as long as they are straight and not bent you are good to go.

Side play varies from crank grinding, a little side play does not hurt anything as long as the rod is straight and in tolerance with the journal, they are made to float in the piston and that way you get more oil in for lubing. Just my thoughts .

Re: 1924 Coupe Project

I made templates over the prints with carbon paper so I would not ruin my originals and it was easy to do your own work, the two hardest pieces are the front two door pillar, you need to screw a straight board on the curved piece to router out your windshield area. The second hard one is the piece b...

I see them there also Dan, you need to sleeve it and seat it to keep it from leaking there, might as well find another block!
