Here’s the bedplate that holds the crank to the block. By making this one piece, the 3.0L has a rock-solid foundation and ensures bearing failure will not occur because of bearing cap distortion. The bedplate features 12mm bolts to attach this to the block—again, just like the 5.9L Cummins. Also of note are the large oil passages (A) that are used to keep oil drained from the heads from dripping onto the crankshaft.
