Taking measurements before disassembly
#1
I'm disassembling the engine now, and the manual says I should take crankshaft end play measurements and connecting rod side clearances and cam clearances, etc. If I'm going to replace all the engine bearings and the cam and all that, do I need to take these measurements before I remove the crank and cam? I mean, they will all change after I put the new parts in, right?

That is correct Doc. Check your clearances on reassembly. Measuring now is pointless.
