Hey guys!

But I need some help with what bearings are the “best” fit

The best fit will be determined by how much your crankshaft is machined by the machine shop if your bearing spun. Or if you just checked clearances and it was beyond tolerance, by your measurements.

I should ask, why are you replacing rod bearings?

Slight “knock” really can’t decide wether it’s a few dead lifters maybe, but it idles fine, starts right up no issue, just a very obnoxious typewriter(literally loud asf) but it’s a steady tick, and it’ll get faster as gas is pressed, but sounds exactly like a typewriterThe video

This. Lifter tick is much more common as well.
