Default Re: Insert bearings

Ford made a number of improvements with B engine design to deal with the main bearing issues with the A.The most influential one was the mechanical advance distributor,taking engine timing from the operator does two things,it insures proper timing at all rpm ranges and eliminates the operator input...both beneficial in avoiding detonation,which works like a sledgehammer on bearings.
