I thought I would be able to just swap out the 250 crank bearings, but they will be the wrong size inside diameter. There is plenty of meat in the case to make it work. The only interference will be cutting into the top end oil feed galley. But as a steel shaft that feeds oil from the oil pump fits in that galley, I have room to grind it down so it will rest right on the outside of the bearing race. I will post up some pictures tomorrow of what I'm trying to explain. More to come.....I promise.
Interesting project. Sounds like you have been way too busy for a spring chicken. Will be glad to see the pics!
