HogTown,
Those of us that rebuild Model T's (1909-1927) and Model A's (1928-1931) are always looking for good quality babbit to melt and pour for mains and cam bearings. It used to be plentiful in the grade and percentage needed for automotive engines but like everything else is getting more and more expensive all the time. Please don't shoot it up.
