Default motor help

I have motors that you can run a tank of fuel at 230 deg. and pull the back plate off and there is a oil film on the con rod but the crank and rear bearing is dry no oil film what so ever. Can some one help me out?

There has to be otherwise the engine would both run hot and/or show physical wear symptoms.

When you shut them down, are you running/burning the fuel out, or just letting it idle and then shutting them off?

There is a LOT of windage around the bearing with the engine running and post-shutdown you're only going to see a t-tiny film sitting on the face of the bearing. If you were to let the engine sit, then you should see a very small amount puddle to the bottom of the bearing, below the crank counterweight. This takes a while though.

If you're not exploding bearings or have any signs of wear or other outwardly nasty symptoms, don't worry about it.
