Lotus Elite, Eclat, Sunbeam, Esprit, Excel main bearings Heavy duty set
One set of heavy duty main bearing shells in standard or 0.010 oversize. The original high quality Vandervell bearings are now no longer available for these engines. Until recently the only option was a lower grade bearing, which in my experience is not as durable as the originals in high performance applications. I have therefore had heavy duty Tri-metal race grade bearings made again. These high quality bearings are also offered at well below Lotus prices. VAT is included in the price. I can offer them in the various shell combinations to suit all 900 series engines, I need to know the details of your engine to ensure you get the correct shells for your application. Lotus used various combinations of bearing shells on their cars over the years, I will need to know which combination you need. Please refer to the photograph which shows the various combinations used by Lotus. A: 10 x groove & hole (Jensen, Elite, Eclat). B: 5 x groove & hole, 5 x plain (S1, S2, S3 Esprit). C: 8 x groove & hole, 1 x plain, 1 x plain & hole (Sunbeam Lotus, Early Excel). D: 4 x groove & hole, 5 x plain, 1 x plain & hole (Esprit Turbo, SE, S4, S4s, GT3 and Late Excel).
Please note these shells are standard outside diameter: about 1 in 100 Lotus engines had over-bored mains that use a +0.015 larger OD shell. Lotus 907, 910, 911, 912 and 920 engine - Jensen Healey, Lotus Elite, Lotus Eclat, Lotus Excel, Lotus Esprit. Main bearings, main bearing set, Tri-metal, Heavy duty.
