Before replacing the bearings in an engine, you must first determine if the crankshaft is a standard size, as in a factory crank, or if the crankshaft has been machined, like in a crank kit from an aftermarket parts house. Once you measure ALL the journals, you can purchase the correct bearings, or give the crankshaft to a machine shop to make the journals a size that fits available bearing sets. If you do not measure your journals, you may wind up with too much bearing clearance and then ultimately an engine failure. Also, if your journals are different sizes due to wear, you’ll need to give it to a machine shop that can machine them all to a known size that matches available bearing sets. Never skip this step. it is very easy to do, and critical to a lower end repair. This engine is a 1996 Land Rover Discovery 4.0 liter engine.
