Re: Snyder’s Inserted Rod Size?

Re: babbit tolerance? .000?

If you use 0 clearance you will never get the engine to turn. If it would it would melt the babbitt, there would be no oil flow. O clearance is BS

If you have inserts you could be having trouble with the rear main not getting enough oil to the rear of the bearing.
The pistons are set to close by a lot of builders, you need .004 on number 3 and...
