So what to do about the crank bearings

Yeh the spring spec is 42mm, I doubt that piston ever moves....I dint think the LC8 suffers from excess oil pressure.

If your splitting the cases then it worth overhauling the crank, measure and order new bearings. Have a look at Pyndons info page, ISTR the newer case has a locking plate for shells.
