Re: engine question

No, its not possible unless you got octopus arms cuz you cannot *fully* remove the oil pan under a bronco even jacking the engine as high as possible with the upper intake off, anyways, if your main bearings are bad enough the rods are even gonna be worse as they recieve lubrication after the mains. Sorry , been there already [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img], its simply not worth patching the lower end on a 5.0 in a 4X4 truck unless you plan to put a for sale sign on it the next day.

If your main bearings on a 5.0 are bad, most likely your rod bearings, your oil-pump, timing chain , rings & seals are not much better or worse.
