Asked in Chevy 350
Will Chevy 350 main caps work on a 327 Chevy block with out doing any costly modifications?
call performance automotive wholesale in los angeles, they know ALL this stuff.. Dave New answer; All engine main caps or different, no matter what size engine it is. THE REASON IS, When they are making a engine block, The main caps are bolted onto the block and they line bore the main jounals ( Main caps and the block itself ) So the crank will fit that engine. That's way the main caps are marked and you can't swith them around, they have there own place that they will fit. And they will only fit that engine. They will not interchange with no other engine period.... NEVER

Do you have to take out a 283 engine in a 55 Chevy to replace the crankshaft?
Yes, the engine must be removed from the car. Are you an experienced mechanic? The engine must be separated from the transmission, remove the flywheel. Then remove the oil pan. Take off the oil pump and set it to the side. Next, the front of the engine must be disassembled and remove the cam shaft drive gear and cam chain so you can lift the crank out of the engine block. Next , you'll need to make sure the rods and rod caps are appropriately numbered or alphabetized so you don't get them mixed up, 1-1, 2-2, A-A, B-B, and so on. This is a must. These are machined pieces and can not be mixed up with other rods and caps!!!! The same thing must be done with the main bearing caps. Number them as 1,2,3,4. Number 5 is unmistakable, it is the rear main and looks like none of the other ones. You can easily do this with a center punch, one punch for number one, two punch marks for two and so on, do them noticeably but lightly I must add. You can do this on the rods also, for marking the rods and caps. These parts may already be numbered. After you remove the rod caps and main caps, you can lift the crank out of the engine block. What happened to the engine for it to need the crank replaced? The repair work to the engine could be more extensive than just replacing the crank. I'll do my best to help you, if need help to fix the engine yourself. If you have the tools to take the engine out, then you can, with help, repair the engine, put it back in and make it run again. My name is Larry. I'll check back here to get the details of the failure from you and let's see if the engine is fixable.

How do you take out a chevorlet 305 crankshaft?
The Same way you take out any other engine's crankshaft. You take out the engine, drain the oil on a stand, turn the engine upside down, remove the oil pan, then the connecting rod caps (mark which cap goes to each rod), push the pistons down towards the heads, remove the main caps, then pull out he crank...

What is the torque specs for the crank bearing main caps and rod bearing caps on a 1999 dodge ram 1500 3.9 liter V6?
Asked in Chevy 350
Can you reuse your crankshaft after breaking the main caps?
If you are working on your main caps, then you are in an engine rebuilding situation. If they actually broke, you need to find out why, and replace or repair the parts, including the crankshaft, that are bad. If, by breaking, you simply mean that you loosened the bolts, you still need to evaluate the status of the crankshaft and bearings. This involves checking for size, remachining as necessary, replacing parts as necessary, checking bearing clearance, and torquing the cap bolts to specification.

Crank wont turn after rebuild and torque of cap nuts?
How can the flywheel be turnedon a frozen engine to turn the engine?
If the engine is froze up, the flywheel can't be turned. You can use a socket and breaker bar on the crankshaft bolt, work it back and forth in both directions and it might break loose, but I wouldn't count on it. Usually you have to take the caps off of the connecting rods in order to turn the crank.

Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs, Chevy Blazer
How do you replace crank shaft on 1999 Chevy blazer?
You take engine out. Remove the flywheel/flexplate and put the engine on an engine stand. Remove the oil pan, timing cover, and timing chain. Remove all rod and main bearing caps. Remove the crankshaft. NOTE: You would be much better off buying a new or used engine than attempting to replace a crankshaft.

How do you tell if 350 has a four bolt main?
Asked in Chevy Suburban, Chevy 350
Why does the crank freeze when you torque it to specs?
I guess you are talking about the main cap bolts that hold the crankshaft in the block, If so then you either have the wrong bearings. are the main caps are in the wrong place. ( The main caps will ONLY go in a certain place on the block ) and no other place. Are you have them turned around. The main caps are marked from the factory 1-2-3 and the rear one will only go in 1 place and that's # 4 There is an arrow stamped on the top of them and it must point towards the front of the engine.
