Oil coming out of small hole in block


Recommended Posts

My friend reports that the bearings were cut 0.004" larger than the journals with the anticipation of shrinking to 0.002" once fitted. 


Unfortunately, neither of us thought to measure the bearing IDs once they were fitted... 


We were successful in getting the bearing off after a little bit from the propane torch and hitting it with an aluminum block and hammer. 








Nothing obviouly wrong that we see.

Took the camshaft to the machine shop today to clean up the journals a bit more. Once that's back, I'll get some new bearings cut. I suspect the bearings shrank more than anticipated once pressed in the block. We'll measure the bearings very well this time around once pressed in...
