Do any of our experienced engine buiders know if there is any difference between the main and rod bearings in an Ea 81 and Ea 82? Are they the same thing and swappable ?

ThePartsBin.com lists the same part number for main bearings for my 82 EA81 and my 88 EA82T, but doesn't have a listing for EA81 rod bearings. CSK lists the same Cleavite number for EA81 and EA82T rod, and same number for several companies for the main.
