“A” question on Babbitt bearings

Rebuilding an”A” that has bad babbitt on the connecting rods. Can I have the journals cleaned up and put in rods with insert bearings? Also wondering if there is a way to narrow it down to what year it may be? The number on the plate is rubbed off. I can send a picture if that helps or is there an Internet place to go to, that would tell the differences and changes thru the years? Thanks

With babbitt rods you can remove shims to make up for a worn crank. Unless your starting with a fresh grind, putting insert rods in could be a bit of a hassle finding bearings to fit your worn crank.

Yes sir, if it's 6-3/4 stroke, you can buy a used set of 60 insert rods and bearings. I am assuming it's not an unstyled. Slant dash or war time A's were built from '39 to '47. In '41 they went from a 4spd to a 6spd trans. The cyclone A or late style ('47 to '52) are much more obvious with square seat,square shifting quadrant, and difference in frames.
