Yes, all bearings are babbitt. The rods are all between .001 and .0015.. I was pleasantly surprised. I have had this car for 5 years with probably 400 miles on it. Due to a recent drawn out move the car hasn't gone more than 10 miles in the last 18 months. Will resolve that very soon.

Well it has been a month and i finally got the A back together. It sounds like a sewing machine now.. Much better than before. It is still pushing oil out of the cotter pin hole. The first time it was pretty much dry, the second time it blew lots of oil out the tailpipe ( the new valves, guides, springs,etc) fixed that. The crankcase pressure is gone now. Still need to rebuild the carb and have ordered the kit. Thanks to all who contributed..
