I'll tell you in the morning what my machinist wants for it.
He left me a message today recommending a turn.​
I have a spare, so I will probably use that to avoid ruining the hardening as guttedmiata mentioned, but I'll ask anyway.

The machinist already turned it before I could look at it, which I'm not too happy about.
Anyway, it came out to $120.

I bought King bearings... Did I make a mistake?
Daily driver, 330hp goal.

The newer XP tri metal version might be Ok. The older version whatever it was, I think AM series was not up to the task in my experience. King told me such after I sent a failed set back they said I needed tri metal but they didn't have theirs in production yet at that time.

ACL Race I know work flawlessly for High HP and RPM.

I'm 100% with Bob on this.

I'd say he and I have abused bearings as much or more than anyone...and I don't think either one of us would put anything other than ACLs in our motors if given the choice.

I would recommend spending the extra few bucks and send them to Calico to be coated.
