    Available in a Performance or High-Performance series, JEGS Engine Rod Bearings are constructed of two layers: high-strength steel and a bonded layer of silicon, tin, and copper in an aluminum matrix. Properties are maintained throughout for consistent and reliable output, embedability, and conformability. Additionally, micro-fine machined High-Performance Bearings are narrowed for large radii cranks and have chamfered oil holes. Bearings are sold in engine sets for Chevy and Ford applications.

    High Load Capacity
    With 8,000 psi load capacity, aluminum silicon bearings withstand the stress of high-performance engines. JEGS Bearings are made from metallurgical alloy so cars that have standard bearings benefit from this alloy used in race engines.

    Temperature Resistance
    This alloy's melting/fatigue point is 450°+ F (100° more than the thin babbitt overlay of tri-metal bearings). This means extra protection against localized overheating due to misalignment, detonation, overloading, loss of coolant, etc.

    Particle Embedability
    More than half of engine bearing failure is caused by metallic particles that scratch crank journals and weaken or tear thin bearing overlays. Because aluminum silicon overlay is much thicker than babbitt in tri-metal bearings (0.015" vs. 0.0008"), it provides 18 times more embedability to trap particles to prevent crank journal scratches. This is especially true for particles over 0.0004", which cause most of the damage.

    The thicker aluminum silicon layer allows bearings to better conform to problems, such as metal-to-metal contact due to misalignment or connecting rod stretch. Greater conformability also means fewer bearing failures.

    Control of Wall Tolerance
    Bearing-to-journal clearance on main and connecting rod bearings is affected by several factors. We've alleviated concerns about inconsistent shell-to-shell bearing wall thickness by using statistical control methods to minimize wall thickness variation. JEGS Engine Bearing thickness varies no more than 0.00010". Other manufacturers produce bearings with wall thickness at the crown that varies as much as 0.00025".

    Motor Vehicles

    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.
