    Does anyone make oversize main bearings ?

    Does anyone make/sell oversize main bearings.
    I have spun a main bearing on the block side -front main
    and would like to NOT throw the engine in the trash.
    Thanks for any help or suggestions

    don't bother with SBT IMO
    send your crank to falicon and have them repair it, that way you can use the stock bearings.
    They weld and regrind - things will be MINT. High Performance Products/ Falicon 727.797.2468
    Crank will be polished and work as good new.

    The problem is just not on the crank...
    The 1 main on the block itself has damage due to spun & seized bearing.
    I would have to have the block machined "down" and use an oversize bearing or
    have the block "repaired" somehow...

    +1 , on the SBT. I don't think their oversized bearings will help you anyway, as I am fairly sure they are only oversized on the crank side. So it wouldn't help you with the main.

    I heard, and you may want to verify by e-mailing them, that you can get oversized bearings from Les Cooke, but again I am not 100%

    With machining, it may end up costing you just as much as you would spend on a nice used block. To fix that kind of damage is not a cheap fix.

    I would check the crank real close to see if it is out of round with that failure.
    When I spun my rod bearing, the crank appeared fine but right before it was going to be rebuilt we double checked it and it was slightly bent and out of spec.

    I got my oversized rod bearings from Les but I do not know if he does main bearings.

    Not sure if repairing mains on this 4 tech us good idea.

    Why did this happen, just curious.

    My bad I didn't not read things completely. I will look at for my info on this as I know of at least one instance were the block was repaired like you need. Can't remember who did the repair at the moment

    I've been checking around quite a bit on this. Sent our email to LesCooke, but no response yet.
    Armin doesn't have anything to repair my existing condition either. And can't find a 2006+ block
    at salvage places either.
    I will keep checking around.
    If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

    Usually takes a day or so to get an e-mail back from them with my experiences, plus gotta figure it's just after 6:00 am in Melbourne.

    Keep your eyes peeled on e-bay as well, usually a block or two for sale. I just looked and there are a few on their now, but they are pre-06. There is usually a decent turnover of them on ebay.
