I am replacing my crankshaft with one from another block so not sure how this will affect which color bearings to use.
The block I am using has “RRRRRR” (all red) stamped on the bottom of the guide frame (bed plate)
The ORIGINAL crankshaft has “GGGGGG” (all yellow) printed on the largest counterweight.
The REPLACEMENT Crankshaft has “GGGGGR” (5 yellow and 1 red) also printed on the largest counterweight.
Should I be going with the color codes for the lower bearing shells from the original crankshaft or the replacement crankshaft? And using red upper bearing shells?
I have all of my main journal and housing and measurements but I cannot find the thickness measurements of new color coded bearing shells anywhere to calculate my clearances.
Does anyone have the thickness measurements of the main bearing shells various color codes? And the main bearing clearances?
