Default Sealed Power Engine Bearings...Any good?

well, I started off with king bearings but they were too thick (for a re-ground crankshaft) and now I'm assed out of my money. The place I got them from are now out of business. So I was thinking of going with sealed power engine bearings from my work. Anyone use these before?

Sealed Power has been around for a long time in the domestic world, so I would trust them by brand reputation. However, I have not personally used their bearings - just their pistons.

Well the worst that could happen is the clearances dont check out again...if they are indeed a reputable company. Where do you work at and why cant you get more info on them from your place of work? Just curious, I mean, if you use or sell them, shouldnt you have some product knowledge or the ability to find out if they are good?

I used sealed power bearings on my rebuild. 500 street miles, 50 + hard race miles, no problems yet. 60lbs of oil pressure at 3000rpm 210 deg oil temp.

Well I bought them from a second source. I bought it from a place in Boston that sells just bearings. They give advance a huge discount and then I mark it up and sell it. The problem is that the company went under...we only sell sealed power and acl's but no one has them. So either I get the sealed power bearings or the build goes on hold.

I see your perdicament lol. Well the general concensus says theyre good, get them and check the clearance? Its not like you have anything to loose but another 50 or so.

Yeah but to a poor college student it does lol. I just want this thing to be reliable and no problems with the bottom end. I just want a few more people to say something about them.

I just put some rod bearing in mine Saturday. They are Sealed Power, box states they are made in Japan if that means much to you. Also, I will be changing the oil for the first time after about 20 miles, then again at about 200. I will be driving it about 20 miles a day, it's my D.D. I should be reporting back when I can. I have a built Y8, SRP pistons, Eagle rods. Good luck on your build.

I was thinking of going with the Sealed power bearings myself... Although for the price, King bearings arent a bad choice either... Let us know how well they fit if you go that way...

I just got my motor together and ran a set of Clevite 77 bearings. They have been good so far.. and with the 0.001 in. of extra clearance they are nice for boost builds, assuming you have a crank in good condition.. i found a Z6 crank for my build for 50 bucks. I had it cork polished out and ran those bearings and the clearances where very nice. Good luck with your build

Sealed Power is about the same cost as OEM bearings from NAPA
