Crank spigot bearing Phosphor Bronze or Needle...

I have both PB and Needle bearings for my Ford V8, but cannot decide which to use....

Needle sounds better, but it has several parts, and breaking up is not unknown...

PB is just a single lump, nothing to go wrong really....

As the bearing does nothing unless the clutch is pressed, I'm leaning towards phosphor bronze....

But looking to the collective wisdom here for any thoughts.....

Iíve had problems with needle roller bearings siezing on a few occasions and also with PB s coming loose or squealing due to drying out. My preference is needle roller

Needle roller or ball bearing every time. People only have problems when they fit them back to front, the dust seal needs to face the clutch.





Never under estimate the ingenuity of an idiot!

Not so, VW air cooled and some water cooled, the bearing is already installed in the flywheel securing bolt in the factory, Iíve had a few that have caused problems.
