Clevite® TriMetal™ engine bearings have been the industry standard since the first patent on the cast, copper, lead composition decades ago. The success and notoriety Clevite has earned on the track proves the commitment to excellence maintained by all who contribute to the Clevite brand. This track success provides Clevite the ultimate proving ground for technologies that yield results in all passenger car and light vehicle applications.
Engineering quality engine bearings involves a number of interdependent factors. These points are just a few of the advantages Clevite's TriMetal™ engine bearings:
Seizure Resistance - Clevite TriMetal™ bearings have as much as 40% better seizure resistance than competitors' engine bearings.
Load Capacity - Clevite TriMetal™ bearings can withstand over 60% higher loads for extended periods compared to competitor bearings.
Embedability & Conformability - The overlay on a TriMetal™ bearing offers a superior surface for forgiveness, offering additional protection that can be extremely beneficial in an engine that is poorly maintained.
Durability - Clevite TriMetal™ bearings not only exceed light vehicle OE durability requirements of 150,000 miles, they also exceed heavy vehicle OE durability requirements of 300,000 miles.
Even all tri-metal engine bearings are not the same. If you want the highest quality, strongest, and original TriMetal™ bearings, ask for Clevite Engine Bearings.
As more and more OE manufacturers shift to aluminum bearings in OE engines, Clevite has introduced a new line of engine bearings designed to be the highest quality replacement bearings in the industry. Clevite BiMetal™ engine bearings carry on the tradition and reputation that Clevite has built throughout the course of time.
Clevite BiMetal engine bearings feature a 100% lead free aluminum silicon bi-metal material; this includes 60% more silicon than leading competitor's bi-metal material for better conditioning of journal surfaces. These BiMetal bearings also offer greater wear resistance than leading competitor's bi-metal material, as well as greater seizure resistance than the leading competitor. Clevite BiMetal bearings feature 100% bored ID's for precision and surface characteristics and where appropriate - straight shell main bearings utilizing an "umbrella" groove that allows for superior oil control and improved pressure.
