That is true the one time I called him he answered and was able to answer my question. It has been my emails that have gone unanswered. So I guess calling is the way to go. I might be calling him tomorrow rather than sending him another email.

Looks like Fab9 updated his website to show out of stock :(

speedfactor.co.nz worth a try, also you may find as I did that the supply in NZ is still or was reasonable.

Hey guys - we're reaching out to the 3 customers still waiting on ACL bearings and offering them this alternative at no additional cost. The launch of the new website has had us swamped but tracking shows we will have our KING stocking order in 2 days. We have 18 sets of the KING Tri-Metal Race bearings on the way. Our machine shop had nothing but praise and approval when we mentioned this as an alternative.

Product Link

EDIT: We've already been asked about international shipping - shipping worlwide for a set is $23 US

Good to hear. I actually just placed an order without bearings as the ACLs were out of stock.

Are these standard size only? I pretty confident standard will be fine for me, just curious.

Hi Justin, we have orders in for additional sizes, should follow the arrival of the first 18 sets by 2-3 days. Looking back at the last 30 ACL bearing set orders, 2 were over-sized, 28 of the orders were standard so we based our first order on this and had them shipped express. The additional sizes will be listed on the site once they are checked into inventory.

We now have them back in stock! This morning we opened up a stocking order from them with 25 sets of main bearings. They are now enabled on the site and shipping same day.

We have about 200 sets of ACL BP engine bearings in stock. We assume ACL Australia will run out again as they did for most of 2015 so we cleaned out our distributor in case there is another supplier drought.
