Re: Plasti-gauge

   > Plastigauge is this plastic "string" you buy. It is very precision made
   Not to sound snooty or anything but if you're REALLY looking to blueprint an
   engine (or build one playing the tolerances in your favor), you ought to pop
   for the proper measuring tools.  Plasti-gauge is certainly good enough for a
   "standard" rebuild of a stock motor but if you're trying to wring a lot more
   power out of one, $500 or so spent on some decent measurement tools is money
   well spent.  IMHO, YMMV, BTDT, etc.

OK, I'll bite: What's the $500 "tool" to measure a bunch of plain-bearing

As the "common man"'s way of verifying that all the pieces you've got
back from the machinist(s) are bored/ground/etc. to spec, Plastigauge
is hard to beat!
