Main Cap #1 not flush?
I have had this question for a bit and a recent complete tare apart and cleaning of the block ( got engine cleaning brushes to completely clean out the oil valleys and oil deposits).
The #1 main cap when installed is not flush with the side of the block. Is this normal? When installed and torqued down the #1 main cap (the one right next to the crank and oil pump) you can feel an edge the main cap "overhangs" by a few thousandths. I will measure when I get the chance.
But is this normal? I don't recall when I was doing the initial tare down.
