    It is that eventually that I have to figure out. I haven’t seen the line yet…

    I’d like to rather think of the Kalahari trips I did and what I am still going to do
    But yes, I am also laying awake because of the problems the car has at the moment

    Britpart bearings are the only bearings they could find for the small end bearings. Would you trust Britpart bearings?

    As the small end of the conrod is tapered, fitting them could be more difficult, as you have to get the conrod square to the small end bearing when pressing them in.

    I know that Mike from Britannica Restoration rather fit new conrods.

    I think jfh put his finger on the problem here.

    Whether they are Britpart or not, the problem is fitting them effectively. Somewhere on my Fugard thread I went through this story as well... ended up buying a set of Bearmach conrods from LP4A - I think it ended up costing around R5k. This after spending about R3k on engineering the old ones and not being happy with the result.

    Turner Engineering does sell original LR conrods, reconditioned with new small ends. I would trust them. But you will pay...

    The engine is being done by a reputable indy - ask them for some honest advice, in my opinion. What do they usually do? I would imagine that they would be happier fitting new conrods as well. This whole thing will impact the original quote they gave you - maybe they are trying to take a cheaper route to avoid doing this.
