So i have the engine torn down with the exception of the crank. The center bearing concerns me however. You can see the cut outs for the bearings on the cap, when you spin the crank back and forth, you can see the tabs shifting around in the cutouts. I never thought a bearing should move at all, what is it that I am seeing? and should i be concerned?

Second question is, on my rods, all the cap side bearings look fine, the rod side bearings on 2 & 3 however have this weird wear on them that you can feel, its off set just a little bit. Is this signs of detonation that is recking the bearings?

I have it torn down due to ringland on #2 from detonation.

I will hopefully have some pics of bearings and pistons up tonight.
