curtiss created the topic: CAM Bearing
I was down looking at one of my blocks and I was looking at the front CAM bearing. The crank and rods have been converted to inserts and not knowing what a babbot cam bearing looks like I was hoping one of you could be able to tell if this cam bearing is a babbott or a normal press in of some sort?

Thanks,
Curt

It "Looks" like a (soft) Babbit press in unit to me.
It also looks to be in good condition.
Have you tried to dig your thumbnail into it?
We have a stock original 1931 engine apart at the Museum, I will try to remember to snap a picture of it on Monday for you

This is a 1931 Auburn 8 that we have in the shop. The engine is/was not 100% original as the Pistons had been Knurled at some point.
This is what its' Cam bearing looks like.

Yes, the engine is being rebuilt in the shop. It is for The museum's 1931 Auburn sedan AKA "Education car"

Thanks for the picture, that one almost looks like someone machined a bronze insert to go back in. I have heard of a few doing that.
