  • Bearing clearance for challenger.

    Hello all,
    I have stripped down a 65 250 challenger engine and gearbox to assess the condition of all the parts.
    What is the correct clearance spec for the gearbox bearings and the outboard drive side crankshaft bearing?
    I have found the g.b high gear bearing to be V4, main shaft V3 and the crankshaft bearing to be V3.

    Also, the small end bearing bush on the con rod has turned and is not a very tight fit in the rod end. What would be the normal remedy for this?

    And, where would I obtain a set of piston rings with Dykes top ring at +0.060"?

    Cheers and a Merry Christmas
