I am by no means a Ford expert, but from my knowledge, it all depends on your intended use, horsepower, and so on. If you provide more information I am positive that someone else will join in and tell you exactly what you want to know.

The Durabond cam bearings are the ones to use and the Clevites are the ones to avoid.

They are bad about sticking to the cam especially with a roller in the 460. I've never seen them be a problem in other engines. I had that happen in the first big Ford I ever built with a roller cam and lucky for me it didn't hurt the block or cam after a trip to the hot tank and a polishing.

Do you suggest the coated or noncoated bearings...looks like durable bond offers them either way....

The wider "performance" bearing un-coated will handle 20% more loading than the coated regular width "performance" bearing.
