Replacement bearings (or bushings)
« on: March 08, 2006, 03:28:27 AM »
Any advice on where to order top quality TRB's or bushings for the crankshaft?  From another thread I gather that bushings are more efficient but more sensitive as well.  Thoughts?

Once you remove the bearings from you engine, you can read the part number. Usually they are the same as Timkin.
1)  Order replacements thru an Industrial supplier (Grainger, etc.)
2)  Take the bearings to a Bearing supplier in your town, give him as much info as you can about it's use.
3)  Buy them thru a Listeroid importer like Joel, George, John, Eric etc that you have confidence in (George B for me) My experience is with George, he always seeks the best spares he can get, and has some name brand roller bearings on hand for ST heads at least. Get his Lister Longevity CD, it's worth it, and he adds more as time goes on.
