well ive split the engine and front left piston bearing shells are gone,so full set of con rod bearings are needed,,,,not sure about the crank bearings....heres a few pictures of crank bearings....any ideas if they are still good to use?    there was no play in crank before strip down

 I'd measure up the journals and see if they're in factory spec , If so  I think a new set of stock shells are under £100 .

Would be a shame to spend £1k+ on gaskets and a timing belt kit , just to end up with crank rumble
