Default Babbitt bearings

I have a 2 hp Witte and I need to pour new bearings.The engine was in a fire. I have engine completely broken down, suprisingly everything came apart fairly easily. If anyone has done this I would appreciate any help. Thanks

Go to the top of the page and click on archives and then type in babbitt bearings and you should find almost any thing you would like to know about the subject. I don't know if he still has it but some one had some babbitt for sale.

Look in the archives and then just make up your mind to do it. I had to replace a main bearing in my Associated and put it off for a year not knowing what I was doing. Then I made a jig and poured the bearing, fitting it with a scraper made from a 3 cornered file. Everything went well and was very simple once you put your mind to it. Lots of luck
