I bought 3 of these , I thought they were fag packet sized ....huge . Obviously off a big engine , I thought maybe steam but then they are metric so that dont work . Note the incorrect spelling of the word journal for the crankpin ...maybe why they wernt used.
Got any of these stuck to your bus motor Nick ..... :P .....want one for B112 ?

Could they be off a marine diesel or a truck/digger/backhoe or a train engine? I've never seen anything like it.

I first read that as "Bearing Shells for Undersized Journalists"

It was definitely made for an engine though, not a Press.

Im not really that bothered about researching it , more about either hiding them from Di , or convincing her that they should be polished and used to cover old light switch holes in the wood panels in the hall .
