Examining the main bearings of my 2.5, I can't help noticing that there
really seems to be room for bearing that are, say, 20% wider then the
standard ones. With more horses on tap than the standard item, wouldn't
it be natural to assume that such bearings would make the camshaft last
longer? Albeit with a slight increase in friction.
Even the big ends seem to allow some 10% wider bearings.
Does someone know if wider bearings can be obtained? As far as I can see,
the 4 cylinder (Herald/Spitfire) uses the same bearings as does the 6.
