I think that I have found the cause of 'low oil pressure' in my ALF 12.
IIRC, the Auburn 12's had insert bearings on the mains also.
Would any of you have, or know of a source for a replacement bearing
or a modern equivalent?

Andy,
I have a friend who is familiar with ALF, I will try and get with him early next week to see if he has any suggestions.

Andy,
I was able to get some information for you. Paul's Rod and Bearing in Parkville, MO. (816) 587-4747 offers a service to refurbish your existing bearings. You may want to give them a call to see if they can help you out.
Good luck
Pat

Thank you for the info.
I have decided to proceed with my "Spare" engine and search for parts (or repair) as I have
the time.
Luckily, I bought a partial engine from pete kelley a while back.
THANKS PETE!
