King performance bearings

Alecular™ Bearing Material -- KING developed this alternative to the traditional tri-metal bearings construction.

KING bearings have a single deep (.012" - .015") layer of Alecular material, an exclusive alloy of aluminum, tin, copper and other metals, on the steel backing. This gives us superior embedability. "Bull's Eye" Bearing Wall Tolerance -- With advanced quality control procedures, KING is able to maintain rod and main bearing wall thickness tolerances at an amazingly tight plus or minus .0001" -- far tighter than other manufacturers.

"MaxFlange®" -- A manufacturing principle that lets racers and street engine rebuilders save engines with borderline crankshaft endplay situations without additional machining. Precisely-controlled bearing flange length is the secret.
King originated this manufacturing technology.
