What Are Marine Engine Bearings?
A yacht or boat engine consists of marine bearings to help moving parts such as the crankshaft, connecting rods, and crossheads move fluidly. The bearings give support to the other marine engine parts, so they avoid metal-on-metal contact and reduce rotational friction and corrosion. With a compatible lubricant, bearings bear the load and allow the crankshaft to run smoothly. You can look through our types of bearings and otherMAN diesel engine parts through our comprehensive inventory.
When to Replace Boat Bearings?
Proper maintenance and consistent surveys of your engine will keep your boat running efficiently. There are many reasons you may need to replace your marine bearings to keep your engine running smoothly. Bearings can erode due to saltwater and immense heat, or surfaces can crack because of large engine load. A marine bearing can usually last 25,000-30,000 miles before needing to be replaced. However, if you are noticing scorch marks or cracking, your bearings need maintenance repair or replacement. OurMAN engine maintenance specialists can assist with your engine parts or repair needs.
