PlastiGAUGE! Use a micrometer and do it right. Especially on a rebuild. If you just want to see if your bearings are still... Ok... after 60k miles then ok... use plastiguage. But for a new build use a mic to check true diameters.
YES!! plastigauge, it costs 5 bucks, is accurate enough for a regular rebuild and its easy to do. measuring it with a mic requires a set of mics ($$$) and is not that easy to do (yes it's only taking measurments and adding and subtrackting to figure clearances, but its not easy if you dont know what your doing)
