Hi I need help 02 mustang gt 4.6L

I'm changing my rod and main bearings for the first time. I have the oil pan off but not sure where the main bearings are located.. I know I should get my crank checked out but it doesn't look bad. Can you guys tell me where the main bearings are located plus any other advice that would help me.. Thanks guy..
I have an 02 mustang gt 4.6L and I'm completely new so any advice no matter how small will help tremendously!!!!

The rod bearings are in between the rod and crank where the rod bolts around the crank and the main bearings are under the main supports that hold the crank in the block... The bearings aren't ball bearings they look like half circles of a piece of metal... If I was you I would have someone help you that has done this before. It's not all that hard but it will destroy your engine the first second you go to start it up if you make a mistake

The main bearings are located under the, aptly named, main bearing caps. There are 5 of them and they are the the part that holds the crankshaft to the engine block. They have 4 bolts apiece, two in the horizontal position and two vertical.

I highly recommend investing in a service manual for your car if you are going to be doing this sort of work. There are a LOT of torque values and sequences that must be followed to do the job correctly.

Thanks for the help guy. I'm starting on it today so we'll see how it goes.. I replaced the head in my car and I've never done anything like that so I'm hoping if I can do that then this shouldn't be that bad.. I heard there's an oil hole I put a cotter pin in to remove the bearings? Is that correct? Thanks again
