Default Replacing engine bearings......?

I bought a used engine from ebay...... ....MT12

Anyways I took it apart, cleaned everything up and started putting it back together. It seems there is some play in the bearing.
Is there anyway to tell if the bearings are bad before I put everything back together?

Also, how hard is it to replace these bearings?

Does anyone know if these bearings are intercjangable with novarossi RS12 series engines?

Thanks

The main thing is to get the bearing sizes, I'm sure u can easily get replacement bearing.
Removing the bearings may be tricky, I've never done it but I believe you would have to heat up the engine block on a stove first and then tap them out.

This is a good artical to read if you're rebuilding your nitro engine. Page 3 has the info on removing bearings.
