Re: Should a newly installed crank be tight?

I checked the direction of the caps, but didnt take them off yet. They are all in the right direction. If I do find one or tow that dont match up, would it have hurt the crank or bearings being tightned down like that? If I put my crank and bearings in another block and the crank spins freely than I know there is something in my new block, right? I have a 305 block, when I took the pistions and rods out of it the crank turned easily.
Is line boreing really often required? The first block I sent to the shop hadent spun any main bearings, but they said it would need line bored. didnt really make sense to me.
