Crankshaft Thrust Bearing Failure – Causes & Remedies

The engine bearing material must be extremely strong because of the stresses caused by the explosions inside the internal combustion engine.

The bearing material must be extremely strong because of the stresses caused by the explosions inside the internal combustion engine. Reducing friction is accomplished in part by the fact that dissimilar metals slide against each other with less friction and wear than similar materials will.
