Checked my bearings out tonight, and wondering wether to replace or not, the crank bearings have light scratches on some can be felt with my finger nail:
Ive ordered some plastigauge to measure clearances, but can I get away with reusing these or not?
I priced them up at nissan today:
Bearing crank - 12207-54C00- x 2 Type 0 £13.64
Bearing crank - 12207-54C01- x 3 Type 1 £13.64
Con rod bearing - 12111-54C01- x 4 Type 1 £7.97
Ring set piston - 12033-54J00- part number not recognised <------ doh forgot to give him the alt. number, should get a price on that tomorrow!
The rod bearings arnt that bad, but bneed to check clearances:
The cap bearings are pretty much the same as the rod.
I read somewhere that the Rod bearings need to be ordered in 2's as the part number is only for one half? is this correct?
When I reconditioned the wifes 1.0L Yaris engine a few years back, the crank bearings had to be replaced due to the gouges and ribbed for extra pleasure bearing surface:
Thankfully mine arn't that bad!
