Look inside most winning Indy cars and NASCAR vehicles and you'll find Clevite engine bearings. Since the development of the first precision insert-type bearing in 1929, Clevite bearings set the pace for engineering quality, and today they exceed industry standards for strength and durability. Most Clevite performance bearings use a special TriMetal design, first developed 50 years ago and perfected over time. A copper-lead alloy is added to a steel back, which is then electroplated with a white metal surface layer which produces an ideal degree of conformability, embedability, slipperiness, and fatigue resistance. Summit Racing also has other Clevite engine components like pistons, rings, and cam lifters, all manufactured to the same high.
Clevite Coated H-Series rod bearings were developed primarily for use in NASCAR type racing but are suitable for all types of competition engines. These H-Series bearings have a medium level of eccentricity, high crush factor, and have hardened steel backs and thin overlays. They also have enlarged chamfers for greater crankshaft fillet clearance and are made without flash plating for better seating.
Bearings with .001 in. extra clearance are available for standard size shafts and with or without dowel holes. H-Series bearings are recommended for use with crankshafts that have oversize fillets and where engines run in the medium to high rpm range. They should also be used if contact patterns obtained with Clevite P-Series bearings are too narrow. Contact patterns should ideally cover 2/3 to 3/4 of the bearing surface.
