    300 v8 bearing clearances

    Okay, so Iíve got my 300 all machined up now and Iím ready to start reassembly. Does anyone know or have a good guide as to what my bearing clearances should be with everything torqued up.
    Thanks in advance

    The chassis manual specs are in the Buick 300, 340 Engine Specifications above, but they are extreme. You would not want to be tighter than .0015" and hopefully not wider than about .0025".
