i am going to be replacing the rod bearings on my 5mge and i wanted to knwo if their is anything else that i should get to replace while i'm at it and have the engine apart and all that kinda stuff reason i'm changing the rod bearings is because their was a knocking noise and it's gotta be the rod bearings so i've decided to change them and was wondering if theirs a list of other things that i should have cheaked out and/or changed after i put the rod bearings in before i start the engine up again most likely going to change all the gaskets and everything like that and wat else should i change or take a look at before i put the engine back to gether and start it up??? the noise appeared after engine ran very very low on oil more oil was put in but went to more of a thumping noise wandering what should be replaced beside rod bearings?????

machine shop

so just take down the crank and the rods the actual rods to the machine shop and ask them how the look or just ask them how much it will cost to fix and then go from their and then replace the bearings either way i'm going to replace the bearings

$$$

about how much money would it cost to get it cheaked and replaced bearings and also put stuff back to spec though i know it's not going to be cheap but an estimate would be nice lol. and how long does it usually take a machine shop to get all that kinda stuff done and able to be taken back???? well any info is helpful.
