June 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Cedar Grove, NJ – King Engine Bearings, a leader in high performance engine bearings, has introduced the second generation of its XP Bearings. The enhanced tri-metal, copper lead construction with nickel barrier of the XP Bearings features King's proprietary SecureBond advanced adhesion process. This unique process provides superior stability between the top and intermediate layers.

"Our XP Bearings are ideal for high load, long duration racing such as circle track, off-road, and off-shore in engines using steel crankshafts," said Limor DePetro, director of sales and marketing, King Engine Bearings. "This is another great addition to our line of performance race bearings that reinforces our prominence in race engine bearing technology and design."

The XP Bearings have a .0005" enhanced performance Babbitt overlay that provides as much as 30 percent greater load capacity than traditional bearings. It is suitable for operating temperatures of up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

King manufactures a large selection of bearings engineered for specific applications. All King performance bearings feature greater rod bearing height that improves bearing to bore contact/heat transfer and reduces spin potential at high RPMs. Main bearings feature enlarged, chamfered oil holes and are ½ grooved for uncompromised lower shell load capacity. In addition, most rod bearings are available with or without dowel holes. King bearings feature the closest wall tolerances in the industry (Bull’s Eye Tolerance), with all shells matched to .0001". Main and rod bearings are narrowed for large radii crankshafts.

King produces high performance engine bearings for circle track, drag racing, monster trucks, tractor pulls, off-road and off-shore racing applications. For more information on King XP Bearings and the company's complete line of performance engine bearings, visit http://www.kingbearings.com
