Hello! Let's see if we can can work together to get to the root of your question!

Just take a pointed bar in the main cap holes and pry back and forth to break cap loose from the block. From many years of working on engines, if you have a spun bearing, the crankshaft is not going to allow an inframe ! You can not get crankshaft surface good enough to lat on a new bearing. You will wind up with a repeat failure.
