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. We have therefore had heavy duty Tri-metal race grade bearings made again. These high quality bearings are also offered at well below Lotus prices. I can offer them in the various shell combinations to suit all 900 series engines
Lotus used various combinations of bearing shells on their cars over the years, you will need to know which combination you need. Please choose the relevant set from the drop down options above and your parts will be dispatched exactly as specified by yourself.
10 x groove & hole (Jensen, Elite, Eclat)
5 x groove & hole, 5 x plain (S1, S2, S3 Esprit)
8 x groove & hole, 1 x plain, 1 x plain & hole (Sunbeam Lotus, Early Excel)
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. I am not able to supply these shells, only the standard OD versions.
