Thrush Bearing????

A buddy called me and said he just finished his short block and forgot to do the thrush bearing adjustment (the push tap and tighten) on the third cap. Well his question is since everything is new from crank, bearings and all the caps are straight is the thrust bearing adjustment needed. The assembly rotates very well. ? I told him I would ask. Also all his clearances ( rods and mains ) checked out. What's everyone's opinion. Thanks for time.

Yes your thrust bearing adjustment is definitely important to do correctly just because the rest of the measurements are good doesn't mean it is within spec

Re: Thrush Bearing????

There is no "thrust bearing adjustment" per se. All you are doing is checking the clearance.
If it is out of spec you have to try a thinner or thicker bearing as needed.
More than likely it will be ok.

Your thrust bearing helps control end play on the crank there are adjustment shims for them

I've never seen anything like that, only thicker or thinner bearings.
Where do you get them and how do they hold them in place?

Thanks everyone ! I'll let him know. One more question and I'll go. Which intake would flow better. Trick flow street burner or elderbrock performer 5.0 (not rpm). There both idle to 5500 rpm. Any thoughts ?

Both are good intakes. I would probably go with the Trick Flow myself.
