Clevite Engine Parts has introduced Clevite 77 H-Series high performance connecting rod bearings and main bearings for the Dodge Viper. The H-Series bearings are available for the 1992-2002 Viper models, which are powered by the 488 CID 8.0L aluminum block V-10 cylinder engine.

The H-Series connecting rod bearings are available non-coated or coated with Clevite’s exclusive TriArmor moly-graphite treatment. The main bearings for the Viper engine are available only as non-coated bearings because main bearings are not subjected to the same high degree of friction and other stresses as are connecting rod bearings.

Clevite’s H-Series engine bearings are specifically designed to meet the demanding high performance automotive needs of racing teams and enthusiasts. "The H-Series rod and main bearings for the Dodge Viper feature the same high performance materials and engineering used by NASCAR and other top level racing organizations," said Bill McKnight, director of brand development for Clevite.

McKnight also notes that the introduction of the new rod and main bearings for the Dodge Viper is another example of Clevite’s ongoing commitment to meeting the performance needs of the motorsport industry.

Part numbers and complete specifications for the H-Series bearings are found on page 44 of the new Clevite Performance Engine Bearing Catalog (Catalog No. EB-40-06). The catalog is available from Clevite suppliers throughout the country.

Clevite provides a wide scope of under-the-hood products for the global replacement parts market, including Clevite 77 engine bearings, Victor Reinz gaskets, Perfect Circle piston rings and Clevite engine parts. In addition, Clevite 77, Victor Reinz and Perfect Circle are exclusive NASCAR Performance Products. Clevite’s Internet address is www.engineparts.com.
