    I took the main bearing caps off my 350 today to find than they are all fuct. My dad says to get a whole crank kit which will come with new caps, bearings, and crank pistions, basicly everything. I just looked on summit and they did'nt have it. Someone help me...again

    A crank kit will not usually come with the main caps. Most crank kits will come to you with .010 under mains and rods. Part # SES-3-48-05-000 uses std size rod and mains.

    it is a bearing kit rods and mains not caps. if the crank is scord it will need to be turned or just polised and this will require different than stock size bearings. check over closly first.

    what do you mean your bearings are "fuct"? there are several stages involved with that term. if they're just showing the copper, throw a crank kit at it and call it good. if any of them spun, pull the engine, and have the main saddles checked for straightness. you may end up needing and align hone, or and align bore on the main saddles.

    Clarify for us...

    Are the bearings wiped out?

    Or are the bearing caps themselves damaged from spun bearings?
