Anyone rebuilt an small journel 2300? Seems to be a 1990 model ford ranger. Having trouble with the main bearings. Does the thrust bearing have the trust supports on both halfs?

Mains only have the thrust ring on 1 half unlike the regular 2.3 ford large journal. Main numbers should be 7291 for michigan I believe.
Make sure you hardblock that small journal block the cylinder walls are thinner than large journal blocks~~~ if you're putting 12 to 1 or higher on that thing it will split the cylinder walls.

Stock bore and stock pistons, never seen only 1/2 thrust bearing before thanks for the info.
