On a side note, I insured the package for $5K, hoping that UPS would lose it and I would purchase a brand new one from our host, only to see that new their going for $6800. Can't win..LOL

Stupid question. When I removed the crankshaft bearings, stamped on the underside was a -.025 on each. I'm assuming these are undersized going for $98 each . Is that a correct assumption? My engine spun #5 with less then 2k on a rebuild from the previous owner. The rest of the bearings look new.

Interesting rebuild!! You need to see if you can get bearings for what the crank will have to be turned to. You also gotta ask yourself how the bearing got fired? Poor tolerances, oiling, base case, bent crank, etc?
