Look like flathead V8 bearings to me.
I dont know how to send the fellow a message to tell him they are not Model T, Maybe someone can do that.
I figure early flathead V8
I sent him a a message.
No point in telling him, all his parts listing are Model T.
including the above fuel pump he is calling a Model T carb, and he has Model T waterpumps listed too....most folks now list any part with 'Model T' in the title, as that is known to get the eye from eBay searchers like us
Those are flathead V8 rod bearings that rotate in the rod and on the shaft. They had no stop to prevent rotation.
I hope you are just pulling our legs James!!
He is not. Two rods share the same crank journal, so round and round they go!
Amazing stuff Ford used!
OK, V8's do that anyway, I need to know more about this, a full floating bearing on a big end, what would it achieve?
Found some info on them, interesting!
Free floating bearings, with babbitt on inner and outer surface of shell.
Big end on connecting rod had a finished surface (like the crankshaft journal).
Ford had full floating rod bearings from 32 to 48 in cars.
These specific bearings were for late 1936 - 38 only. Changed again in 1939.
