    Changing the mains in the car is not all that bed (just messy under the car, oil dripping on your head etc) There is a tool for that, which is inserted in the oil hole in the crank, to rotate the top half of the bearing out, and a new one in, by turning the crank. It's the only way to do it in the car. I never had the tool, and made them from a big cotter pin, flattened to a "T" on the loop end.
    You need a torque wrench if you do it, to torque the main caps when going back together.

    Only the same motor it came with especially if it's a practice rebuild.
