'34 engine work

next week, I have to check out a '34 Chev ( or Ford ) , owner says it has a knock. So, I'm assumming it's a bearing.. it would have those babbit bearings, ... Which makes me ask, where and how do I get the rods, bearins,and maybe crank ? Also, I have other motors,,but a babbit one, would it be any more difficult ??.....thanks

There are a kazillion suppliers for internal motor parts, parts stores, Summit, Jegs and more.

What "other motors" do you have that are not babbit bearing motors??

I'm sorry ! I guess I was in hurry t0o post this, and on to something else. What should have said, is , I have DONE other motors before, never a 'babbit' kind . I've done a 235-6 about 8 years ago, did my wifes Cutlass 350 2 years ago, MANY years before, I used to do some farm tractors, and the Deisel truck motors, BUT, never did a babbit thi Just wondering what I would be in for !!! thanks for the intrest !

The only poured and sized bearing shells I've worked with were in Westinghouse turbine generators (shaft bearings) I worked with for the Air Force at their power plants. Large 9.5 megawatt units.

What motor are you talking about here that requires a craftsman to pour custom babbit inserts for? I'm confused!

All current automotive motors I'm aware of use babbit inserts, you know, the old crank and main bearing sets you buy from the parts house. There have been some roller bearing motors years ago, Honda's little sports car year for one, but they didn't pan out.

I do babbit motors often. Currently a 24 Ford.

I get rods/block done (babbit poured) by Pauls rods or Effingham re-grinders in Effingham Ill. www.effinghamregrinding.com/aboutus.htm-I have a grinder in Pontiac, Mi. That welds and grinds the crank pins back to standard. .

Find an old astablished machine shop that does farm/commercial equipment (maybe oil rig stuff?). They will give the low down on costs in your area.

Babbit bearins/

You need to find a club in your area that caters to original restored old cars, Eg model T Ford Club of america, chapters , Model A ford club. Early ford V8 Club. Horseless carriage club ETC Those guys know who does babbit work. how long it takes for the semi retired guy to get to your project. It takes a set of molds for the babbit, to be poured , then when it has cooled they are sometimes pounded to set them, then rough boring, then dye, turning the crank to see the shinny high spots, then hand scraping , repeat, lots of time, $ $
