Default Re: shimming engine bearings

If you are doing this with the engine in place did you use a jack to exert upward pressure at each individual bearing when taking your plastigauge measurements? That crank can flex a few thou and give some strange readings if you do not forcibly push it up against the block babbitt while measuring from 'down under'.
