I’d agree with that John. The next motor I do will be end fed. The guy that does the work for me does a good job of the bush and I’ve seen engines he’s doing e cover over 20k and still no oil light flickering on at tick over. But for the cost and more so when you start putting A10 cranks into A65 cases etc, the bearing conversion cost is negligible in comparison to the work involved when setting it with a bush.
Now let’s all have a beer
