What caused you to spin the bearing in the first place?

from his post it looks like he's just slapping a set of bearings in and going. it would be ok in a car that doesnt get beat on often, but for a race car i dont see them lasting...

Yeah, 1, 2, 3, and 6 look bad in that picture, 4 and 5, not terrible, but in time...

I will say, for spun bearings, it could have been a lot worse. Last motor I spun one on, there was no bearing left except a little sliver on the top, rod and crank tore the f*** up, and it got so bad, the rod cap broke. Background, 94 cavalier, rebuilt top end because of collapsed lifters, plus oil leak, repaired everything, ran like a champ with 158k, no knocks, I guess it was lurking though, my brother used it for work, one day said it was knocking bad, took it out of commission, later decided to see if she would blow (I wasn't going to rebuild again, not worth it at that point), and as I'm getting my wallet, I hear vrooooom vroooom.... silence, craaaaaaaaaaaaank. Walk outside, What did you do? it died...lol

sorry I got sidetracked, it happens.

those bearing are not spun (the tabs are not flat), they are definately shot. How did the crank journals and caps look? Any scratches or deep grooves?

The bearings are meant to take the abuse instead of the crank.
