  • 040 rod bearings

    A while back there was a post about 040 V8 rod bearings. A set has come up on ebay, not cheap. Also a set of 060 resizable?? rod bearings. "Any competent machinist can resize" Some other interesting engine parts also. Not a vendor I have ever dealt with.
    American iron, real old school
    With two tone paint, it sure is cool

    Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
    With an overdrive that just won't stall

    With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
    With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

    Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
    The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

    Tried to sell her, but got no taker
    I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker

    Can we trouble you for a link, or at least for an eBay auction number?

      Yes, but at way, way more than one would want to pay. These kinds of one-off setups are a PITA and most shops charge accordingly.

          The poster may have done the right thing and moved on to a Good Crank to handle the readily available Std, .010, .020, .030 Rod Bearings instead, by now.

            0.060 are good for grinding a .020 offset in the crank

              I don't get it, these are STUDEBAKERS, there is NOTHING available that I know of smaller than .030 Undersize, so why talk about .060 or "Resizeable"?

                Rich, careful there. That undersizes smaller than .030" are not common doesn't mean they were never available or not rare occasion available today. The .060" under Champion bearings have been available forever and are still in the catalog.

                Here's the set of .040" V8 bearings on eBay which had been discussed.

                And here are the .060" under.

                  I see that Jack, but I always think in terms of "Available" to mean in New, current Mfg. in QUANTITY, in Stock, not NORS one of a kind, even shelf pitted.

                  Johnson had awesome Bearings back in the Day, when the thinking was highly Polished, smooth Bearings, not coated with break-in coating or whatever all of the New Dull ones are.

                    These bearings may well save a crank or two. 289 cranks are not that plentiful any more.
