To check crankshaft endplay, the last cap was tightened to register the cap into the block and then broken loose. With a micrometer at the front of the block, Consolo used a flat-blade screwdriver between the cap and counterweight to shift the crankshaft from front to back. We recorded 0.0008-inch of endplay. Note: shifting the crank back and forth will also set the rear main cap since this particular block lacks dowel pins.
