You really can't trust anyone.... Its easier to rebuild an engine than it is a Trans.... But when you go to torque all of the Main and rod caps, First off all of the clearances have to be within range... Then all of the Bolts have to be torqued in steps and in sequence....
When you install the crank, after you lube the bearings with assembly lube, being careful not to touch the face of the bearings.... Insert the bearings into the block main journals... And the Main caps.... After lubing the bearings you can set the crank in place.... Then take the lubed main caps/bearings and install them in their proper place.... Torque in steps and sequence per the service manual, Once you are done, the crank should turn pretty free with no binding in a 360* roatation, nice and smooth... If it doesn't you have an issue...
we have seen a few builders here that created more throuble than they solved...
