Reply To: Binding Crankshaft

If I’m reading your chart correctly.
Most are above tolerance spec.
So it appears there should be no binding concerns with the caps, bearings and journals.
My next thought would be to spray a light ( very light ) coat of blue dykem on the crank shaft journals reassemble the caps and bearings and rotate the crank one turn then disassemble and look for any place(s) where the dykem has been removed due to rubbing.
From that you’ll need to see of it is the crank or the bearing(s) and cap(s) causing the issue.
