Thank for the input on my “Binding Crankshaft”. my next question is this: when plasti-gauging my crank journals should I install the all bearing caps, torqued in sequence, to make sure the crank is properly seated prior to gauging each journal? Secondly, can I remove each bearing cap, install plasti-gauge, torque in 3-steps and move to the next journal until all gauging material is installed on all journals and then remove and measure all readings at one time. In that I must measure the crank at 4 points of the clock, I’d the think all bearings must be fully torqued in position to obtain an accurate measurement across the board. Thanks for your time.
