New main bearing available
King Bearing has released a new "HP" bearing for the 3" main Pontiac. The alecular material, it's soft enough for a stock application AND blown/alcohol and nitro, as well as strong enough for everything in between.
The part number is MB5511HP and is available in std, std-X, .001, .010 and .020. 1/2 groove. They've eliminated most of their 3/4 groove versions after extensive testing. If one likes the tails, they're easy enough to carve.
Thanks to Ron Sledge of King for putting up with us harranging him for the last two years, unable to find suitable bearings for Goateous Maximus.
For builders, this is great news. For Pontiac guys, it means even more. A NEW bearing available due to popular demand! Think of it. These are basically the same main bearings we put 40 passes on (1 set) in Dirty Bird during his "reign".
Not here to sell anything. Call your engine parts people and ask about King.
