I’ve always commonly recognized the term “sleeve bearings” to describe the split bearing used on cranks and rods, and assumed it was common. However, another regular of knowledge and experience commented on another thread that he’d never heard the term. That got me to wondering, is this a common term in the automotive world? Is it regional? Or is it perhaps one that I unintentionally carried with me from my many years in engineering in the manufacturing industry?
It doesn’t really matter, it’s only a semantic, but I am curious. What say you all, is it common (or not) where you are?
