The great IMS bearing wonders

Hello gang-
Has anyone here installed the cylindrical bearing solution from European Parts Solution ?
If so, how would you rate the product and installation ?

Thanks

BR

Very little out there, which is why the question was asked.

The cylindrical bearing format appears to provide greater inner bearing surface area. I believe this manufacturer also offers a direct oil feed version.
Roller bearings do not provide any greater load carrying capabilities than ball bearings.

I'm curious if anyone has used the Performance Bearing ceramic hybrid that Ben Burner used.
Ben where are you?

Me too
I guess if you say anything negative about that L and _ company you are blacklisted.
Therefore, alternatives are welcome !

There are different ways people search. I use: "site:986forum.com [key words]" and get plenty of results. I expect the last thread you started is gone because someone flagged it for Trolling.

LN makes a roller bearing too. Jake Raby posted some good comments on why he chose not to use a roller bearing. Flaps10 used the EPS bearing with his rebuild. Maybe throw those names in with some other search terms and you won't need to keep striking the steed which is bereft of life.

Thank you
No,it wasn't for trolling. It was for being critical of a key vendor that is partnered with Pelican, and I understand that.
