Does anyone see any problem with using ROD bearing inserts on the MAINs or visa-versa if we could find some to fit????

Rod bearings or main bearings is bearings, if they are of the correct OD, ID and width. However, can't picture any rod bearing which would work as the rear main/thrust bearing. Since the rear main is available only as part of the set, what would be the point? FWIW, other than the exorbitant cost, the King main bearing set we have is as good as the best we could hope to find.

Now, rod bearings are another thing entirely. I'd rather find some main bearings as rod bearing replacements. I haven't yet had any trouble with the white-box-Made-in-Taiwan rod bearings, but I'm building a couple of high-horsepower engines. Prolly, we'd all probably be more comfortable with a known-quality supplier. However, same problem - to get eight rod bearings, we'd have to buy two sets of V8 mains or three sets of 4-cyl bearings and throw away the thrust bearing(s).

thnx, jack vines

I don't know about the thrust insert for rod use. If u have a mill or a lathe is it feasable to cut the thrust flange from the thrust insert and use it??? Depends on price difference of the bearings wheather or not to be bothered with it.

99% of the time the thrust bearing is wider than the rest of the bearings. No matter what you do, you'll have to buy two sets of main bearings like Jack says.

Last set from Terrill Machine was $115 for mains and $96 for rods. Kanter gets $132 for mains and $113.60 for rods.

I've looked at every interchange in the books and nothing seems to fit. Finding the right ID is easy, but then the OD is slightly different, or the locating tangs are in the wrong location.

BTW, I need one-only .010" rod bearing. Somehow, I've got an old set with only seven. Anyone have a lonesome rod bearing at a $10 price?

thnx, jack vines
