You wont find new main bearings for these engines. However, you can go to your local NAPA and get fel-pro set# HS7953S. Its a head set for the 450-501 engines.

I just got done putting an rd450 together this afternoon thats going in a w40. watch out for the nos army gaskets on ebay. They are for the early engines and the water jacket holes dont line up, one hole towards the rear of the gasket is a hole and needs to be a slot. They may work im going to try it. Bearings seem to be out there in nos form but there a b-tch to find and new ones arent avalible threw a parts store. cam bearings and lifters for a 1206 fit the red diamond engines. lots of luck!
