In search of big end rod bearings

Recommended Posts

I have a 1948 Jaguar MK V with the 2.5L engine that’s in need of big end rod bearings. The ones pulled out were Glacier GS7583M. Funny thing is that even though the Jaguar book shows those as original, the oil hole is offset to the rod oil hole by half. Maybe to increase oil pressure? Who knows...I just need at least one new set. 5 sets are fine, one set has major scoring. An old Jag builder says that if I can’t find new ones to swap the top half of the bad set kfor another sets bottom part as the pressure is pretty much on the top half. It’s open, might as well replace it if I can find them.
