    Sometimes its possible to change the rod bearings without pulling the engine but the book shows a time of 18.9 hours which includes R & I the engine and if the crank journals are damaged you will need to have the crankshaft turned anyway.

    You can remove the transmission to remove the crankshaft which should be turned or replaced along with the connecting rod and bearings.
