Right I've converted Mikes post to a PDF and word Document but I cannot upload it to the site and I only have photobucket. 

 

Can someone host the files or something?

Only thing I would say is...

 

Be aware when using graphogen to build your engine, it'll end up in the gearbox.

I's like to add one more small comment, do not put oil under the bearings before you put them in the rods or mains, you want that area completely clean and dry between the bearing shell and the block, cap or rod.

Have to disagree with that.  The bearings are designed to run wet in a pool of oil.  Sounds like a great way to ruin an engine rebuild

I read Magneto's post as meaning not to put oil on the back of the shells, only on the bearing face.
