Hello all,

I got my R27 crank finally and I have a couple questions:

1) The person who built it put a plastic caged bearing on the REAR of the crank. I know I have seen posts here that don't like plastic and I was wondering what the feelings were on this. Should I change it?

2) The rod side clearance is .005 and the Barrington book says a max of .0035. Should I be worried about the extra .0015 of side clearance on the rod? I know I have heard the Barrington book uses very tight clearances.
