    Someone listed these bearings on one of my Facebook groups but doesn't know what they are, maybe one of us with old parts books can find them. They are Johnson Bearing Part # KF-88 MSTD Bottom line is CB-294 1205-SB. I'm thinking standard cam bearings for a small block Chevy as the letters seem to indicate. Maybe an early 265 with the two holes for oiling.

    From EBay
    Part number is Toledo CB294-2

    Bearing is a .002" oversize.

    Parts info says it is used in the following:
    Continental F226
    Kaiser-Frazier All 1946-1952 (Rods 2-4-6)

    Not sure of the accuracy. Mike

    the bearing on ebay that you mention sure looks like what it is. The mystery bearing is standard size, doesn't have the 2 suffix, it has a STD stuffix.

    Quite a useful part to have laying around, eh? :)

    (edit: also, my old Sealed Power book lists rod bearings for that engine as CB-465P for cyls 1-3-5 and CB-466P for cyls 2-4-6, pictures look like the same thing)

    I thought I.D. meant inside diameter.

    I think it is a rod bearing, I reread it I see in the first comment he thought it was a cam bearing ? Never seen one 2 piece unless it was a overhead cam engine?
