Yep those are great! Engine was run normally with little abuse and good oil changes.

@mouse did you say you scrathed off the bearing meterial inside of the bearing so they show only copper when you install. You know that lead tin and mostly zinc coating is very important. You are surely doing damage to the crank by running bearing like that. There are several times over the life of an engine that it will not get proper oil to the crank like everytime it starts after setting over night and if oil pressure drops in hard corner or braking. Lots of other reasons its there as well. Not sure how removing it help anything. Surely bad move on a stret car.
