RACING CONNECTING ROD BEARINGS
924S, 944, 944T, 944S, 944S2, 968 and 928
Lindsey Racing is now offering the most superior connecting rod bearing solution ever offered for the 944 series engines.
These bearings were developed to give you the optimum bearing clearances whether for your stock engine or a blueprinted 8,500 RPM full race engine.
These bearings will fit your connecting rods as is and do not require machining extra alignment tabs. This enables you to simply slip these into your engine by dropping the oil pan without removing the connecting rods.
These bearing are full width like the factory bearings to give you 100% of the original intended support surface and not like other now obsolete solutions where you install a narrower bearing from a completely different engine family.
AVAILABLE SIZE / VERSIONS:
What is Friction Coated?Our coated bearings are coated with Calico Coatings CT-1 Dry Film Lubricant. This coating helps reduce friction and abrasive wear. It provides intermittent dry lubrication and is not affected by dust or dirt. CT-1 is specifically engineered to withstand the extreme conditions of today's high performance engines. Professional engine builders enjoy a higher level of confidence with increased embedability, strength and durability.
The applied coating is .0005" thick. So coating both bearing shells will reduce the jornal bore by .001".
What is STD +.001" Oversize?That means the bearing pairs connecting rod journal bore is .001" larger in diameter then the Standard (STD) bearing diameter.
When we say STD or Standard, think of that as if you were purchasing a .STD size bearing in a Genuine Porsche or Glyco brand. If you had a new crank, and new rods, this is the correct size for most people. But over time, you "may" need something different because of wear.
Why is there 4 different versions?Is your crankshaft at factory dimensions? Has there been some visible imperfections and you have had it's journals polished, maybe a bunch? Is your connecting rod original equipment? Do you have a new Pauter, Carrillo, Wossner, Moloner connecting rod set? We see differences in the diameter of the big end bore (where these bearings go) from one brand to another.
These four different bearings allow the engine builder to mix and match these bearings in order to get the desired final clearance. This would require your engine builder to have "high quality" measuring equipment.
These bearing shells are thinner at the part line then at the top or bottom of the shell. This allows you to mix and max any combination of the 4.
SOOOO......If you were about to order bearings for your basic rebuild and were going to order Glyco or Genuine Porsche, and would rather use a higher quality bearing... you could either use 4 sets of 928-103-143-15-H, or if you wanted Dry Film coated bearings, you could use 4 sets of 928-103-143-15-HXC. The HXC because they are coated with a .0005" thick coating, the coated end product will be the same journal diameter as the plain STD bearings.
If you're blueprinting your engine and shooting for a specific tolerance, then we recommend getting everything measured and figure out which combination of our choices will get you there.
