No. If you have a rod bearing that has gone bad then it has most likely messed up the crankshaft, either it is badly scored or the journal is egg shaped. recommend getting a crank kit, but if you have high miles you might consider a reman engine if you really like the rig. otherwise it's not worth much.

Sorry Tennis ... The question was ..." Can you remove the rod bearings without removing the engine?" The answer is Yes .... what you do after that is up to you

Ha,ha, ha .... that was from the old school (I'm 71 and we would do the Plasti-gauge and oversize rods ) I even had a tool called a "Sneaky-pete" that made it possible to change the rear main seal without dropping the crankshaft. Ahh ... The good ol' days ... don't miss em' I damm bit

I had one of those too, then they started using one piece main seals. I do miss the good ol' days, no computers, no ABS or air bags, all this garbage anymore that we really don't need, makes me ill. Couple more years and I'm done working on cars other than my own.
