Just to make sure I am reading that correctly, the head is 127.5mm thick and the service limit of 0.3mm. if my head is thinner than 127.2mm its shot?

That's a correct interpretation.

Time to get back after it. Due to the service I received here in town, machine work is being done in Colorado which unfortunately has added to time and cost.
I went to see a Murder by Death/ Devil Makes Three concert in Denver this weekend and I picked up my crankshaft on my way through. Since the shop strictly does crankshaft work, I have high hopes. I also picked up a new(er) Mini from a Subaru dealer (blashemy?).

When I pulled the block apart this winter, one rod journal was a thousandth out of round so I had it cleaned up and nitrided.

So tonight I spent my time measuring journal sizes so I can sort out bearings this week.

Main journals front to back
2.3519
2.3516
2.3518
2.3515
2.3518

Rod Journals front to back
2.0263
2.0263
2.0264
2.0264

Hmm I just found the factory service manual and both journals appear to be ground outside the useable limit.

Fantastic.

Subaru oversize doesn't seem to be thick enough. I'll have to call around tomorrow.

I called King and they don't go far enough undersized. King and oem down, on to ACL now I guess.

Of anything I have done to this car, bearing clearances are probably the thing that I'm the most nervous on and can find the least firm direction on. And it's worse now that the crank has been ground, especially since I think it's been ground too far. I'd definitely appreciate any input that's out there.

Just an FYI, the stock non-turbo 2.2 has the same crank so you could pick up a good used non-turbo 2.2 crank and use that. That would eliminate the bearing concerns. I know it'd be some more polishing and any other crank work you want done to it, but would eliminate the bearing oversizing.

Thanks.
I spent the week calling bearing suppliers. The guy at King had something going on in the back ground and wasn't really talking to me and finally said I don't think we have anything. I called ACL after and the tech guy just hung up on me.

I took the crank to the only good machinist in town (he's just a little slow, took a year to bore my block at the start of this fiasco years ago). He called me back Friday and said he had some bearings on the way that should be in the ball park and at least a good start toward correct clearances.

Haven't made any progress myself. After ordering too many bearings I'm back to where I started.

I mis-measured and found the machine shop didn't grind past the factory limit but he did grind it enough that I can't get the clearances I want. Using King XP bearings 0.25mm I have 0.001-0.0011" of clearance for my rods, Which I assume is a little tight for my build. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Also the thrust bearings for King (and ACL) oversize bearings are wider than stock which I didn't know, and to be fair my local machine shop didn't either but he is primarily a V8 guy.

Lesson learned, should have purchased bearings then had the crank ground. Waiting to hear back from the crankshaft grinder to see if they can help me out.

The thing I've learned about rebuilding Subaru motors is that you need a machine shop that does Subaru motors. There are little things that come up that need to be done and not all machine shops know that.
