What bearings?
 
So I am putting this 355 together and most of all want it to last. Its been a while since I have done this. Performance wise, I always used Clevite bearings for rods and mains. Whats the trick setup now? I see Summit has some competition bearings, Durashield, with some kind of trick coating on them. Whos using what?

Clevite or Federal Mogul here.

Clevite77 for everything, all the time. Use coated bearing if you want a little more durability and tolerance of abuse.

Clevite or King, forget the teflon you're not cooking breakfast on them.

King Alecular, all the way. Or Federal Mogul Performance bearings. I don't use Clevite anymore, they have fallen behind in the technology race.

Me and my builder both use ACL.

I am using almost all ACL now. Never liked King as they had a high stress de-lamination issue (quality controll?) a few years back.

Federal Mogul, if you like aluminum bearings. A lot of Fed-Mog is re-boxed from someone else. Later Clevite quality was suffering, up till Mahle bought the rights and started making them. I try to find production dates from pre 1990. Have also used Mahle bearings. Excellent.
