Babbitt

The bottom end of my 34 Packard is a little loud. This is an unrestored original that has never been rebuilt. I now am considering an overhaul, and am in the info-collecting phase. Is there a thorough, detailed reference on antique automotive poured engine bearings by which I can become more familiar with the topic? I have all the factory shop manuals but they (rightly) assume foreknowledge on the part of the mechanic. I don't intend to personally do the job, but want to be an "informed consumer". Also, any shops in the northern Ohio area that are competent? Thanks in advance, BillP
