  • Clevite bearing marking

    FAFD4559-CA21-4876-A940-77944521EE1F.jpeg Just curious, had a tidy up this morning and I noticed the markings on the old rod bearings out of my 1960 352. Does the 1 70 suggest they were manufactured in January 1970, and as they are stamped Ford would it have been a dealership rebuild or did Clevite supply Ford stamped bearings through dealers?
    thanks

    Notice that the size is +.010". That's probably a replacement bearing.
