Rod Housing Bore

I'm trying to get my engine put back together. I'm using OEM pistons/rods and ARP bolts.
I am looking for the inside diameter of the piston rod, big end bore (no bearing installed) (rod housing bore).
There should be a factory spec with a min and max. value.

I would also like to find the corresponding specs for the Rod journal size on the crankshaft as well as the Mains journal on the crankshaft. I can get by without these later two but would like to have the connecting Rod housing bore specs.

Anyone have this info or point me to where I could find it.

There are no factory specs. This is the info we have been gathering for years to complete my assembly manual.

It literally does not exist; we had to create our own figures from new engines being torn down straight from the factory.

Thanks once again Jake. I'm interested in the manual once published.
