    H bearings are race bearings and are used on a crankshaft with a radiused crank journal. Yours will take a P series Cleveite bearing.

    Take a look at the King bearing line... the SI line is the standard bearing.

    Often you can find older Federal-Mogul bearings on Fleabay for a good price. They work fine, too.

    You really don't need a coated bearing or any fancy-schmansky parts.

    Bearings with holes for dowel pins are usually aluminum connecting rod engines
