These bearings are standard, please see the table below with measurements in inches and millimetres to see if these bearings will suit your crankshaft. 

These connecting rod bearings are sold in a set. The set contains 8 half shells, with 4 of the shells designed with oiling squirter holes as per the original Ford design. One set completes one 4-cylinder engine.

We have the following sizes available:


- 1thou under (0.001")

- 10thou under (0.010")

Your engine should use STANDARD if your crankshaft journal size is between 1.937” and 1.938” (metric 49.195mm and 49.215). See size chart below to help you identify the right bearings for your engine. We suggest checking that you are installing the correct bearing size by using plastigauge prior to final assembly.
