MK V rod bearings


Freshman Member
I have a ‘49 MK V saloon with the 2.5L engine that is in need of Standard big end rod bearings. Of the ones in it, one set has a series of groves. I have great oil pressure and no knock but figured that since I have it open, I should replace them all. The book shows that these are either original or correct replacements. Glacier GS7583M. I’ve checked the usual sources, Worcester Classic, SNG Barrett, Mehel-Clevit but no luck. The book shows 2” rod ID and 1.896 to 1.895 shell bore width being 1-13/16” but I can always Machine them narrower if wider ones are found.
If any body knows of a source for these bearings, please let me know.
