Lets take two engines both with .004 for example. If the thrust is seated correctly in engine A and seated correctly means those two bearing shell parting lines meet together perfectly, then both halfs of the bearing the bearing thrust surface will see equal amounts of residual oil. If in the case where engine B still nets the same .004 yet leaves one upper shell, or lower for that matter, hanging over (mis-aligned) than one bearing side, per side, will actually be used as a scraper and remove that oil film clear off and you run the risk of damage from mis-alignment even though you have your so called desired thrust clearance.
