Default Where to get ACL Race bearings?

I need standard main, rod and thrust bearings. Seems every place has them on backorder. :(
I've made a couple purchases only to be notified that they are not in stock.

I have the following parts which I won't be needing any time soon.

ACL Race 5M8353H-STD
ACL Race 4B8351H-STD
ACL 1T8353-STD

I'll sell them to you for what it would cost to replace them. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

I had the same issue, ordered me a set in February and was told they wouldn't be available until the end of April at the earliest. I called every company I could find that sells them but nobody had the standard size in stock. FM was the only one that had any in stock, all oversize though.

I was told to use Federal-Mogul/Sealed Power bearings and that they were of the same construction and quality of the ACL Race.

If I only I would've made a post like this, I could've bought Skou's!!!

We just received our backordered rod bearings. If anyone needs a set of bearings I can check availability for more.

Would you mind checking for me? I'll have to see if my builder already ordered other bearings or not yet.

http://www.nolimitmotorsport.com/

This is where I got mine because none of the site supporters had them in stock.

I will say no limit Motorsports is a good site. We had a group buy with them a few years back on pistons. We were working with Adam there. Might want to call and ask for him and tell him you are from mt.net and see if he will give a hookup.

http://www.jscspeed.com/ (highly recommend)

http://renown-performance.com/

http://miataroadster.com/

I have ordered from these places as well, and have been thoroughly impressed.
If they don't have any, I'm out of options.

Good luck!

Renown hasn't responded to phone call. jscspeed and miataroadster are out. Miataroadaster had the order I canceled.
