52/53 Chevy 216 insert bearing identification
I have a 52/53 216 that was converted to insert bearings. All the bearings are stamped with „VR“ in a circle. The bearing PNs from front to back are: 2455M, 2434M, 2436M and 2438M. The bearings are .020 undersized. I puting a replacement crank in that is .010 unersized, so I'm trying to identify these bearings to cross reference over to a replace, such as Federal Mogul.
Dave, You can either go to Federal Mogul's web site or try Patrick's 6 cylinder engine parts in Phoenix, Arizona at 1 520 836–1117.
Also try Tom Langdon at Stovebolt Engine Company in Utica, Michigan at 1 586 739–9601
