Title: Bearing insert for 351 Windsor crankshaft
Post by: DSO 90 on November 06, 2017, 06:49:09 PM
Hi Guys,

I have a question about aftermarket bearing insert. Actualy, I'm working on a 351 Windsor engine, cast n C9OE-6015
and I ordered new bearing insert for crankshaft installation. As you can see on the picture below, I noticed their tabs don't match with notch in the caps (only caps).
Bearings in the block fits perfectly !

I checked item number of these parts and it seems to be oK. Do you ever seen that kind of problem ?
Do you have an idea, how to resolve it ?

Thank You for your help !

Franck

I went through this with my stroker motor. You need bearings for a 1969 motor. I think it was 1973 when they changed. Oil passage is cut on both bearings for 69 and on only one on the later motor. I hope my memory is correct.

I ordered mine from Summit. First they sent me the wrong year bearings, then they sent the wrong size. I believe this was a phone order.
