H&E Parts needed...any recommendations for dealers?

Hey Folks,

My H&E R120 engine is currently being rebuilt by a local engine-specialist, and I'm in need of a Small-end Bearing that was left off of the order by a certain Welsh H&E dealer.

I need to get the small-end bearing really quickly and ordering from H&E normally takes several days if not weeks.

UKPPG do not have any in stock and I'd really like to find someone else in the UK who might stock this part.

Can anyone suggest anyone who might be able to help?

Cheers

Steve

Thanks for the tips guys. That's why this forum is so useful.

I went to visit Redhill Bearings this morning, and unfortunately they couldn't help.

The bearing is 14mm (internal) x 18mm (external) x 16.15mm long.

Now the 16.15 is the weird bit. Online I can find a 17mm long bearing which the suppliers tell me that when measured is actually 16.76mm long and I can find references to a 16.5mm bearing which is over in Taiwan. (Not much help!)

My engine repair guy is insisting that it must be "exactly" the same as the existing one, but he is very much a stickler for exact science.

I can't for the life of me see why a 17mm bearing couldnt be used. The current bearing already sits proud of the con-rod by 0.5mm on each side as the con-rod's width is only 15mm. The extra length of the bearing isn't going to touch anything else or add extra weight or anything.

So can anyone tell me how/why a slight change to the bearing length (not diameters) would cause an issue?

Just for my education if nothing else! :)

(On a sidenote...I'm now waiting for H&E to send me one on express delivery)

Thanks guys

Steve

Depends on the gap it fits in to on the piston, too long and it will not go in.
