"So i looked at the service manual more in depth and found the specs. Rod bearings should be replaced if clearance is greater than .0035" Main bearings should be replaced if more than .0045""

"Push Rods were the same 63 to 66. Valve Lifters were the same 58 to 66. I see a few other brands on Rock Auto. I like the Melling as they are known for being a quality USA Made produce.  I seen the JB-969 on Amazon for 4.95 with free shipping."
