Re: Insert bearings

I've seen a couple of descriptions on how to do that and they both look very complexicated (?!) I'm sure pressure would help and I will probably look into it at the next rebuild. You know how well...

Re: Insert bearings

Dave,
Your comments in the last 2 paragraphs are 100% correct. I would recognise a cross fire very quickly now and as you say, I understand how to adjust the timing. Until your comment where you...

Re: Insert bearings

Those are the bearings and I can't see anything done differently in my engine but the front and middle bearings don't last either. A piece breaks out of them from the end of the oil slot to the edge...

Re: Insert bearings

These are the inserts being sold by the vendors. I agree trimetal would be better but they wouldn't make as much profit

Re: Insert bearings

I'll ask my grandkids to help me get some pictures up.
Your question about timing might be on the money but not because I advanced it too far but because it developed the Model A 3/4 crossfire and...

Re: Insert bearings

There is no copper evident in the insert. What you say about a groove in the bottom compromising lubrication, I suspected. That is why I asked.

Re: Insert bearings

Thanks, Dave. This motor has done about 40,000 miles, mostly while working hard towing a camper that weighs about the same as the car at 50mph all day long. The journals are slightly worn so I hope...

Re: Insert bearings

The reason I asked about this is the concern in my mind about the bearing surface of the insert cracking or flaking near the groove. I don't think it would be a problem on the top insert but what of...

Re: Insert bearings

I know this is an old thread but I take back anything favourable I said in it earlier. I have just set about relacing the inserts throughout my engine. The big ends were good but the mains are a...

Re: Insert bearings

While all of that might be so, it is clear that he was doing a high speed - too high for my liking.
