Annotation ability available
A new aluminum alloy bearing material containing lead-base babbitt is described. This material provides the performance advantages of an overplated babbitt construction without requiring the plating procedure. Performance characteristics including fatigue, wear, score, and corrosion resistances and embedability are compared to standard SAE bearing materials on the basis of laboratory tests. Extensive engine dynamometer and vehicle field tests are described to show the excellent durability of this new material.
