  The last (and only) time I saw this was when I was sort of, helping a
rebuild his Rabbit engine.  Same thing happened.  He was very meticulous
about all the bearing caps, right down to the nuts.  It turned out that he'd
swapped two of the rod bearing caps.  Switched them back and all was
peachy.  Take a look at them with the shells and crank out.  The bores
should line up perfectly smooth.  :)  Of course make sure none are just
turned 180.
