I am looking for advice on how to set up the full floating rod bearings.
Thanks in advance.

Hi-
Saw you posting about full floating rods/......

You have to use 29a rods and 1946-48 rod bearings. Using a standard 8ba or
Mercury 4" crank, you can't turn the rod journals more than .010 under (so
I have been told..)

Hope this helps!

Well,
My crank is .020 .020 and I have new bearings for it.
