Default Changing the two Crankshaft bearings

I just bought a G1 and the engine needed overhauled.. I am going back together with new two bearings.. Do I put the press bearings on the crankshaft first or in the case? I am confused,, I seen different older post doing it either way. Which is best, I have access to a press and hot/cold methods.
Thanks in advance!

You're going to hear people say both ways but I prefer doing crank first that way you can see the bearing is seated where it needs to be and "press" on the inside race and not put a side load on bearing then just freeze the crank and warm the case and the case half's will go together fairly easy

Also apply two stroke oil in all bearings and cylinder and piston sides when going back together

How did you heat your cases? Are you talking really hot? Its my next step! Did you use special sealant, between the two case halves?


Thanks again!

Grill or oven works best you don't have to get it's real hot if you have the case around 150-200 and bearings froze it should go together fairly easy IV always used an aerobic sealant on the case halves just make sure you don't use to much that is spews to the inside when the halves are pressed together

I heated the crank shaft case halves in the oven 250 F for about 25 min.. The pieces literally fell together on the frozen crankshaft and bearings. No hammering or pressing at all. Totally amazing!

I still use oil injection... what oil should I use for the injection? The 100-1 is the first tank of fuel? I wasn't aware of that.
