Default Deciphering spun engine bearings

I was in search of a means to decipher a set of spun engine bearings and I came across this interesting webpage illustrating different ways bearings are destroyed.


Does anyone else have any other means to interpret or track down the cause of bearing failure?

I think that would be as in depth as it could possibly get. Thats a pretty good resource.

thats really cool!

Usually a "spun" bearing is just that. It actually bent the tabs and spun. there are causes for this that I do not know but from that link it does shows causes of bearing failures

There are other ways to interpret a cause. like if all the other bearings were ok you would know that maybe that rod/cylinder had a issue. I would than check the corresponding components and see what happened.

Bearing failures suck, they always suck but there could be a million things that can go wrong. Usually the bearings distroyed before you have a chance to look at it anyways.
