Scratches on Brand New Bearings

Recommended Posts

I bought brand new bearings from ACL and the box was opened was kinda squished and 2 bearings were squeezed together and as a result ,creates this.☠️  I gathered some opinions from other groups and forums but sau is by far the best and i trust you guys the most.  Soo whats my verdict. .... F*cked or Not? I cant feel them.

I'm not the only one that can't see the video.

Note that bearings generally have a sacrificial tin layer. If the scratches are just in that, then they could be OK. But, as above, if the intention is to make a lot of power, then no doubts should be built into the engine as assembly time.

I've always been very cautious when it comes to engine bearings.

Look at it this way, if your turning the motor to 7000rpm it means the crank will rotate 116 times a second.

Any bearing issues and the entire motor may well suffer a catastrophic failure.

You have to weigh up the cost of the bearings in question against a possible cost of a new rebuild or even a new motor.

Can you return them and get them re-supplied ?
