Make no mistake, you didn't buy your 280SL unless you wanted to buy best-in-class service and dependability both rolled up into one vehicle. The vehicle in your driveway is head and shoulders above the rest compared to all the other cars, trucks, and SUVs these days. Mercedes-Benz automobile enthusiasts have become used to a certain level of a reputation for strength when driving their 280SL around town. Anyone who owns a Mercedes-Benz knows that when it comes to maintaining their automobile only the absolute best replacement parts will do.
Your engine can totally break down from lack of lubrication; resulting in intense friction and heat. The places where the most rotary movement occurs in your engine are where the crankshaft spins through the main bore, which is why you will find your Mercedes-Benz 280SL main bearings there. These main bearings are made from a composite metal called Babbitt (iron, zinc, copper, aluminum, and more), because its gall-resistant surface makes it ideal to act as a buffer in the space between the crankshaft and main bore in your Mercedes-Benz 280SL. When properly lubricated, friction and heat are minimized as the main bearings protect your internals for, hopefully, the life of your car or truck.
