Thankyou Boys - I am ordering some main bearings for this obscure model whith which I am not so familiar. Just to keep you on your toes what was the date the 4 1/2 L was introduced? Look forward to seeing you in the Barossa - Lex

"I am ordering some main bearings for this obscure model"

Obscure ? Not at all. Standard-sized mains are RH2083, 10 thou undersize RH2088, 20 thou RH2092 and so on.
