Avoiding Failure: The Proper Selection of Engine Bearing Materials
It is the coroner’s job to unearth the questions of how someone died, often in the hopes of helping those left behind. In my work with King Engine Bearings, I’m charged with the task of investigating engine bearings to discover the cause of their failure.

By the time you finish this article you should have a better understanding of how selecting the right materials can help you achieve maximum bearing life, even under the harshest conditions.
