rod side clearance
rod side clearance, what is safe on a '74 455 w/ stock rods and crank? (forged pistons)
I am assembling this engine (just back from machine shop) and my no# 4 and 3 rods (married journal) clearance seem awfully loose, I measured, and its .029 another is .012 and other two are less than that?
I guess what i'm asking is what is max and min rod side clearance? this motor prob. wont go over 5500 rpm, not going to be over revved, it's a street engine.
might get a little squeeze in the future (150 shot)
'76 T/A 462P 700R4
