If you liked the results you used to get with Vandervell bearings--especially their higher conformability--then you should love Clevite V-Series main bearings, which basically duplicate the Vandervell items. Built on unplated steel backings, for better dimensional accuracy and bore contact, they have low-to-medium eccentricity. The biggest difference between V-Series and other Clevite 77 bearings is their lead-indium surface alloy, which gives them that extra conformability. Unlike Vandervell main bearings, Clevite V-Series main-bearing sets use a single-piece thrust bearing, so you don't need separate, assembled thrust bearings. Extra-clearance variations are available to provide an additional 0.001 or 0.002 in. of clearance.
