    I personally like the Clevite 77 for engine bearings...they have a good selection of bearings for different applications such as daily driver to Top Fuel...

    I have used both with no problems in the past. The Clevite77 seem to sell good and I never heard anything bad about them.

    Clevite is my personal choice.... never had any problems or heard of anything with the Federal though... so choice is yours I'd say.

    what ever you decide make sure you plastigauge them. When Mudnutt and I put his together we had a set of mains that were mismarked. The were supposed to be .010 but were standard. They were Federal-Mogul. That is probably a one in a billion thing to have happen, but it did and it sucked.
