which bearings are you talking about. if they are main bearings, they are more like bushings. it has been a year since my mechanical and fluid power transmission class, so correct me if i am wrong.

Could be conrod or main, it's a Honda forum so it makes sense to be talking about honda bearings.

So you mean to say if I am to rebuild my engine, I have to get the full set of main bearings and conrod bearings?

Anyone can comment on ACL bearings?

Iam doin the same process at the moment, generally if you check the crank and block you will get the colour codes for the Orignal Honda bearings used on the crank and rods.

This is what I got :

Crank worked out to be Brown Green Yellow Green Black


Rods worked out to be Green Green Yellow Brown


So I could order these direct from Honda or I could get ACL's but they would have to be within OEM spec once fitted.

ACL bearing are what Honda used in my D15b2 from standard, you can use a product called plastigauge as well to find out what oversize bearings you will need. If you need to know more about Plastigauge search for it on the forum as remember reading something a while back about it.

for those bearings you should be able to get away with acl's except maybe the last one which you said should be black. the acl may be to loose.

i wanst so lucky, my acl's ended up being to tight on 3 of my rod journals. im going to use all oem honda bearings.

plastigage is your friend.

when i tried ACLs, all my rod bearings spec'd fine. the main bearings were way too loose on 4 of them.

i think i had 1 black, 2 brown, 1 ACL(green), and maybe 1 blue. hard to remember now

I hope my acls spec out fine................i got them with my rods, but it would stiull be nice not to have to go to the dealer for the rip off prices.

So if I am to rebuild my D16z6 engine using stock crank and crower conrods, which ACL bearings should I go for?

I do understand ACL had both standard and oversized ones and one with +0.001" extra for the oil clearance. Geez... I m really sux at this.
