Bill: During the forty years I have owned ny 1936 1601, I had the rod bearings repoured once, and had one rod burn out in Florida subsequently, and had it redone. When I gave the car to John Ciselak three years ago for a complete engine overhaul, the bearings were all crumbled again. I have come to the conclusion that most of the people doing babbit bearings today: 1. Don’t know what they are doing,or 2. The proper material to make babbit is not available to them. Tony
