    Always replace all the bearings never use same bearings you only use same bearings if your going to reuse the same head gasket

    I think he just means, given the cost of replacing the bearings, you would be silly not to replace them while you're in there.

    may as well rebuild the whole thing then.
    by putting the same bearings back in the same place you know 100% the clearances are fine, and it will work....providing its not fucked...

    Let me clarify never reuse bearings,Headbolts,flywheel bolts,head gaskets or any gaskets,timming chain or chains depending, rings always hone if in spec with bore guage if not bore to next size and use proper piston size. Built it right first time and be done
