- These low-friction, roller camshaft bearings only require oil "splash" lubrication. Oil feed holes can be totally blocked off, to reduce oil aeration and windage losses. Engine block must be machined to accept bearing size shown in chart.O.D.
NOTE: The 429-460 dimensions are production. These roller bearings require an SAE 8620 steel camshaft.
Looking for a really trick way to drop a bunch of friction in your Ford engine' Naturally, Ford has the answer. Their roller cam bearings will do the trick. They're ultra-low-friction needle roller types, and they require so little lubrication that you can actually block off the stock cam oiling holes. Normal "splash" in the crankcase will get the bearings all the oil they require. This reduces both oil aeration and windage losses. Block machining and an SAE 8620 steel camshaft are required.
Ford Racing Engine Block Bearings
Ford Racing Engine Bearings are designed to work with specific types of camshaft styles in Ford Racing engine blocks. The part details section shows the blocks that each bearing kit covers.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
