Clevite Gen V LT Main Bearings
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.
