We have them in stock. They do go fast but we have never had any issue getting them for our customers. That goes for both rod and main.

your going to have a very hard time finding the race bearings HX versions. ACL is going bankrupt and they don't even know when they are getting shipments them selves.

at this point i would go with cosworth race bearings they have the HX verions that are exact to ACL with .001 extra oil clearence

Do your self a favor and don't use plasti gauge on the rod bearings. It is extremely hard to keep the rod perfectly stationary when torquing it to the crank. If it moves at all, it can smear giving you a smaller than actual reading. You are better off using an OD mic on the journal and a dial bore gauge on a torques rod with bearings installed.
