To test the clearance between the crank and new bearings feeling for play isn't suitable, plastigauge isn't expensive and tells you what's what. Check in a couple of different positions where possible to check for being out of round. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/173609836432?chn=ps[url][/url]

I too wouldn't be keen on running on three cylinders. If the crank journal is smooth and the bearing clearance is reasonable I would run it on all cylinders, and check the oil pressure when up to temperature as said by philedge as this gives a good idea as to how things are.
