So I sparkled my oil with what I'm assuming to be cam bearing (haven't opened her up yet to verify what bearing died, but judging from the oil pressure...) and I'm looking to order a whole new set of bearings. I'm not a wealthy man by any means, so the Jegs bearings look like a phenomenal deal for hi performance bearings. I'm replacing all of them, cam, rod, mains, just to be safe. Anyone use them/ heard horror stories from them before? I would hate to trash my brand new Lunati with bad cam bearings for sure, much less to kill a crank.

It would seem that these are rebranded bearings from a regular bearing mfg. See if you can find out the source and look at their reputation.

That seems to be the case with most of their products. It's hard to tell from their website though.

Call them and ask who the source is. They may tell you. Worst that can happen is you won't find out anything.

question?
how can you possibly even know what size and bearing clearance bearings you need until you tear the engine down and inspect the crank journals rods and main bearing and cam bearings
youll also need to verify piston diam, bore condition, lifter bores, cylinder heads, etc.
you can,t even order bearings until you have done a detailed inspection and precise measuring.
never guess or assume, deal in FACT's,
and measure everything, inspect everything!

Whoa whoa, never said I was ordering them right now. Just that I was considering their brand when I do. I want to know these things before I tear down so I can get it back together asap. I got limited time to get her running again before I move across the country. Just some research man. My luck ain't good enough to guess.

If there are any clear pictures of the outside ends of the bearings, where they butt together when installed,you might be able to see what is on them, like the oversize, what level, like "Clevite", and maker, Michigan", etc.

Long shot, but........

Unfortunately no such luck on the pictures. Might just try my luck and jump on em.

I take it you have already done so, but, if not, call Jeg's and ask 'em who, what, where, why, the works on 'em. The Jeg's tech guys are usually wide open, full throttle when I ask them questions.

Oh no I haven't ordered yet. I still haven't taken the motor out of the car, much less checked any measurements. That's the fun I have planned for the weekend.

I wasn't suggesting ordering bearings, but, simply to call their tech line and ask about them.
