Do you have an old bearing yo could weigh? You want reserve capacity, dump it in fast, let it spill, if there's a minor leak you can often keep adding until it freezes, an air hose can help seal a large leak.

I had to pour some huge countershaft bearings in a 45 HP Mogul tractor.
I made my own ladle using a piece of 5" or 6" pipe (I forgot).
I welded on a handle and a second short one at 90º so I could handle the weight.
I don't know many pounds of Babbitt were in it when I poured but it was HEAVY.......

Where are you buying New Ladles from ?

I have several old ones in various sizes, never gave it a thought they were still available new, but I guess they would be.
