Default Maytag 72 bushing tolerance.

I'm getting ready to ream the bushings for the crankshaft with an adjustable dreamer. What sort of tolerance do I need to hold?

w grile, the bushings should be one to two thousands bigger than the crank shaft .i have found that a better option than reaming is to take your main bearing to a machine shop that has a sunnen hone machine and have them hone the bushings to a perfect fit. well worth the cost.
