Clevite® heavy duty engine bearings includes rod, main, and cam bearings. All but the cam bearings are made with the legendary Clevite® TriMetal™ CL-112 material. Clevite® cam bearings are precision bored to eliminate the need for machining after installation. This exclusive bearing design features a steel backing for support, a cast-copper lead alloy center for strength and durability, nickel dam for chemical stability, and an electroplated white metal babbitt overlay for slipperiness, conformability and embedability. The intermediate cast-copper lead layer creates and interlocked columnar structure capable of withstanding much heavier pulsating loads than any other bearing design.
Clevite® TriMetal™ engine bearings have been tested and given a 12,000 psi rating, the highest in the industry. They are more resistant to corrosion and out-perform traditional bearings by 20 percent or more. That makes Clevite's TriMetal material the strongest currently available in the industry.
