As mentioned earlier, I normally use snap (telescoping) gauges to measure the bearing IDs. But on a Stude V8, the required snap gauge (at least in my Starrett set) for the main bearings has a lot of tension so I worry about scratching the bearing surface, plus it takes me a number of measurements ...
