How hard is it to replace the crank bearings in a 258?

Re: Crank Bearing ?\'s

That is something that is normally done in a rebuild. Why do you want to just replace the crank bearings. If you have a bad bearing it is very possible you damaged the crank and will have to have it machined. Replacement is pretty straightforward, inspect the crank, measure for bearing size if it is OK.

By the way, when you replace the bearings use 4.0L bearings. They are the same dimensions but are made of a more durable alloy.
