I have sent 2 sets and a single rear main cap out ...I have many more sets available ...while this is not the same as a full re-babbitt of the mainbeaings often the mains can be returned to a serviceable condition and thrust clearances restored by replacing the caps and correctly lapping to restore clearances ...always an optimist...Gene French 970-581-2808

Will this be a continual offering, or a one shot deal? I may be interested, depending on status of my block

Very good.. good to hear!
I'll be back in touch when I get that far on my rebuild. It depends on the results of the block test....

Thanks!
