Has anyone used the Mitutoyo 511-753 2" to 6" x .0001 bore gauge for setting bearing clearances? I can pick one up for $200 and its only been used once or twice. They are only like $350 new and that seems cheap for a gauge with that accuracy, but i believe Mitutoyo is pretty good.. not a Sunnen but pretty decent. Its not just the gauge its a kit identical to this one with the same amount of parts. https://www.google.com/search?q=mitutoyo+511-753+bore+gage+kit&client=ms-android-sprint-us&source=android-browser&biw=360&bih=272&prmd=simvn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi7vpjan6_JAhWEwiYKHQUzDnoQ_AUIBygC#imgrc=P0ZrPWGG9sbCOM%3A

I have one of these...  not sure of the part number for mine, but they are not good for bearing clearances.  The stylus is pointy, and has a fairly stiff spring.  It digs into the bearings, scratching them, and therefore gives slightly large numbers.  Many of these, and similar generic 2"-6" dial bore gauges are like this. 

Good Luck!
