    That's why you check clearance with the old rod bolts. Once the clearance is checked and verified, replace with new rod bolts before final assembly.

Just to let you know that if your crankshaft journals are within specs, using WSM bearings work well for clearances at a fraction of the cost to OEM with the same quality. My clearances where anywhere between .0025 and .0028 with WSM bearings.
    yes I am checking the clearances with the old bolts. I got a new set of OEM bolts that will go in on final assembly

    i wish I would have know that about the WSM bearings cause I bought a whole set of OEMs
