I've got a 2004 3.0L V6, on an engine stand belly up in my garage and I would like to check the oil clearances of the connecting rod bearings. I'm probably just thick, but I've look high and low for the clearance specs and torque specs for the connecting rod bearings. I've looked through the online service manual, this forum, and Google and haven't had any luck at all. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks.

What you need is the publication titled:
Engine Workshop Manual AJ with Variable Valve Timing 1766-1U-021 (999-95-EAJV-02)
I have never come across it and Mazda has refused to sell it to me.
@bluedevil6 may have gained access to this but I cannot recall for sure.

Edit: A recent search led me to this.

If it helps please like.

Oil clearance specs for almost every engine I've ever done are 0.002"-0.004" for the mains, and 0.0015"-0.002" for the con rods.
