I just got this engine used. I opened the back to install locking tool to put the fan on and noticed the rod bearing has a little slop around the crank pin when I turn the crank back and forth. Is this normal? Do I need to replace the rod bearing?

Rod bearing
The rod has a bushing not a bearing and some play is desirable to allow oil to get in. steve.
