I'm pulling a lostmarbles here and made a thread before I've done the work. I'm going to pull the pan tonight when I get home form work and give it an evening or maybe all night to drain so, hopefully, I get less oil in my face. But before I get going, post up any tips you have. For example: -Can I somehow create new problems for myself by doing this? In the 40-tech forum, some people said swapping in new bearings is -I'm not regrinding the crank, obviously, so is there any benefit/need to check clearances with the plastigauge stuff? -Apart from coating the bearings with some oil and bolting them back in, anything else that needs to be done?
