What is the main bearing set?
Main bearings are located within the saddles of a piston engine block, and they hold the ends of your car's crankshaft, making it easier for the crankshaft to rotate within an engine block. The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5706SI comprises journal bearings.
What are three reasons to upgrade?
Your main bearings and a film of oil are what stands between your car's crankshaft and its engine block. Therefore, the thicker the oil film, the better, especially when working with a higher horsepower engine. The King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5706SI guarantees a more substantial oil film because they are made with oil clearance. They also feature extended oil grooves and tapered groove run-out that help to enhance the passage of oil between the bearings and the crankshaft. These King Engine Bearings main bearings are quite long, have a big shaft size, and a considerable tunnel size.
Superior Seizure Prevention
The bearings that come with the King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5706SIare far less susceptible to bearing seizure than the factory-installed bi-metal aluminum-alloy bearings in your 2017 Hyundai Sonata. These bi-metal aluminum bearings function satisfactorily within predetermined horsepower levels. They are likely to flake or peel under higher engine loads. In extreme cases, their aluminum alloys may soften and melt, and as a result, the crankshaft may seize them. However, the bearings of the King Engine Bearings main bearing set MB5706SI benefit from high-quality materials with a low-friction, deformable lead-tin-copper overlay that resists seizure when the crankshaft gets in contact with them, even under high engine loads. Therefore, you will do well to get these King Engine Bearings race series bearings for your car, especially if you plan to upgrade its performance considerably.
