I do not believe there is a "step by step" thread on how to install insert bearings.

I had mine done by Fordbarn member Dave in MN, in LeSueur, MN and am very, very happy! He has been making inserted engines for a long time. His website address is www.durableperformance.net.
Also check out another Fordbarn member, James Rogers in Asheville, NC, who also does insert bearings and has a very good reputation. His website address is http://www.model-a-ford-4bangers.com/.

Take a drive down to Dave in MN's shop south of LeSueur, Minnesota and see his operation. I think you will be impressed.
Give a call ahead because he still works a regular job.

I'm the Dave you are referring to....Give me a call. My phone number is on my website. I have been building engines for over 10 years with insert bearings with excellent results.

South of Jordan, Scott County, MN
Good Day!

Photos below are of an engine I finished this past Sunday and installed it in the owners car on Labor Day. He drove the car home this morning.
