    After reviewing some old posts, I think you are right about it being backwards. Thanks for saving my butt!

    All the literature on the subject is pretty vague

    As for the seal. This being my first build. And no instructions came with the gasket. I assumed that the seal “lip” would be matched with the sloping outside angle of the thrust plate. Maybe someone else help?

    Beebe5, thank for checking out my work. I’ve been following your build thread and using it as s guide for my own. You did a amazing job. As for the flange bolts. My car has fluid drive. The bolts are attached to the fluid drive unit and nuts are then attached behind the flange

    Installed crank. Put in top of rear main seal. Put the first three caps on. Checked the end to end play before putting on the rear cap.

    crankshaft question

    This might or might not help On the right is a crank with an 8 hole flange. On the right is a four . On the 8 hole, from the rear main cap to the flange is 1/4” longer than the 4 hole

    It’s exciting to finally start assembly. Started on the valves. Lubed all valve and lifter guides. Lubed lifters. Assembled front of cam.

    Thank you. That gives me peace of mind. I measured the clearances three times with the engine upside down in the stand and found all main bearings between .001-.0015 . I will stop worrying about it.

    So I talked to my machinist. He used a bore gauge to measure the main bearing clearances. He got .0020 .0016/.0019 .0019 .0022 I used pastigauge and measured .0010 .0010 .0015 .0010 what measurements should I believe? If I believe the bore gauge, and I have too large of a clearance, what should I do? Try to find bearing shims? Or..?

    As a side note. I was going to have the machinist set the crank in but he said he needed the flywheel bolts. I frantically searched for them thinking the were lost. After I brought the crank home, I realized that the fluid drive unit has the bolts that go through the crank flang... sigh.. what a dummy I am!
