By the way I am also in Evans,wv.
Screw Haynes, get a factory service manual. Infinitely more helpful.

I have both manuals. Or the Chilton instead of the Hayes. There are somethings I like the instructions in the Chilton or Hayes. For the engine, I'd go with the factory. Also, there is one of the head bolts that gets sealant on the threads. I'd probably get a new set of head bolts. You can reuse them once. If they were reused, it is common practice to put a splotch of yellow paint on them. Not knowing the history of the engine, I'd spend the money on new ones. Also, as suggested, puling the motor might make things a lot easier.
As to the bearings, you would have to measure the journal bores and the OD of the crank. Also, check with plasticgate (??sp). It is was strands that flatten when in an assembly. To check your actual clearances.

To the OP - are you sure you don't want to put in a used motor? The price of the new parts will start to add up.

Way to get under it quickly and inexpensively man! I'd say that is possibly the best $396 you have ever spent.

Thanks for the update.
