Post subject:  '92 Metro Crankshaft query

Standard Crankshaft should measure 1.7710 inches, right?
My number 3 is measuring out to 1.5885 in. with a difference of 0.1825 in. between the two measurements.

My question is; should I use a bearing that is 20k over? Or will a 10k over be sufficient?

Thanks for any replies.


On a side note, what procedures are necessary to paint the plastic bumpers? I'd like to paint them to match the rest of the car someday.

Nevermind. The crankshaft is out of round and I just tried the biggest bearings they make for it. Time for a new crankshaft.

Sorry about that crank, good luck with that.

I painted my bumpers years ago, they were plastic, now they are Motip Matt Black. I simply sanded them with pretty coarse sandpaper, after that I gave them a wash with water and soap and a scotchbrite pad, rinsed them clean, let them dry and wiped them once with a cloth of thinner just to be sure. Then I applied two coats (I think, it's pretty hard to see where you've been already) of Motip Plastic primer and two coats of matt black. Still holds, almost 6 years later.
