Thrust 13a. Do Measure main bearing saddle for the thrust bearing to ensure the thrust bearing seats properly against both sides. Do this before checking crankshaft endplay. As you can see by the dial indicator readings, the bearing is 0.005-inch too large. To tighten it up, put the thrust bearing on a flat surface, place a flat piece of wood over it, and tap on the wood to close up the clearance so it will fit snugly on the bearing saddle. Check frequently to ensure it does not get too tight, as just a light interference fit is needed.
