Just to let you know....You might want to review this before you rebuild.....
The rod bearings for the bike were color coded for the factory workers.The color indicated the precise size of the bearing.This way,by measuring the journal size,the worker could easily grab the proper bearing for that rod.
Now....30 years later...Is that journal exactly the same size? A "yellow" bearing may leave you out of tolerance.We now have 'Plastigauge' to check it.
Here's a print I found on Google images for the 1000 to give you an idea.
