Oversize have more metal on the outside and thus an increase in the ouside diameter.

The size is stamped on the back on the insert. dont get fooled buying bearings from places such as ebay. I shouldnt have referenced the hx as oversize above but technically it is oversized when measured to the crank journal.

4l60e transmission question directed to yahoo user “falconry2”. Crankshaft bearings are a softer material than the crankshaft journal or cap. Bearings come standard, oversized, or undersized. Find and repair this problem before proceeding.

Then you might want to cal ACL and explain to them that they are listing their bearrings wrong.

try { then match them up. An oversize, but check with plastigage at 90º angles to be sure that the rod pin is not oval. The crank shaft face is very good so i can not justify stripping them for a regrind, the engine was running well before the piston ring went. $zopim(function() { (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), Std,.025,.25,.50 Cut crank that measures .25 out of spec? if(window.XMLHttpRequest) {

You may be wondering how exactly this hole would get bigger in the first place; after all, the bearing normally wouldn't spin against the block, so there's no reason for the outer bearing or block to wear. The feeler gauge must not fit between the straightedge and the surface of the bore. If you want MORE clearance, an HX bearing or grinding/polishing the crank OR opening up the mains will be needed. Undersized bearings compensate for the amount of material removed during this machining process.

req = false; Where are you seeing thicker backs and thicker inners? google_ad_client: "ca-pub-2626105663467330", } This article was written by the It Still Works team, copy edited and fact checked through a multi-point auditing system, in efforts to ensure our readers only receive the best information. m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) An oversized bearing is one that fits into a larger hole in the engine block, into the hole created by bolting the main caps to the engine block.

If you line hone a block but have stock crank journals you use oversize bearings. These particles indicate that two metal parts are in contact with each other creating metal shavings. The factory service manual covers all of these questions and even has some explanations to go along with it. background: url('') repeat-x;

No trouble in 8000 miles (1.5 years, just don't drive much). It is easiest to use a straight edge and a feeler gauge. dont get fooled buying bearings from places such as ebay.

It's far less expensive (than $11 per bearing HALF from Honda), and works just as well. req = false; OVERSIZED bearings listed at .025-.25-.50 which will DECREASE oil clearance on std size journals. Which would give you more clearance on a stock journal. The only other accurate way would be with this.
