During the current and first restoration of my 810 Cord I have decided to move away from babbit bearings all together.
The engine had been converted to modern big end shell bearings many years ago but retained babbited main bearings.
A "machine shop friend" is making new main bearings from phosphor bronze bar plus I am converting the block to full flow filtration as per Bill Richardson's guidelines. Babbit bearings were ok when there were no alternatives.
Preserving an engine these days is essential.

In case you are interested the last time I checked Doug had two Lafrance engines at the ACD Factory. Fairly reasonable back then.
