Diesel needs New bearings

I have an Oliver Tiger Mk III in great shape, but the bearings feel a bit gritty. Anyone know of a source for bearings or a shop that can overhaul this lovely engine?

cleaning old motors

Buy the anti-freeze that is intended for aluminum engine heads and blocks. VW or Audi has it. The grey finish problem goes away.

Moki 2.1

Any recomendations on a muffler and prop for this engine? My club has strict rules on noise (90 dB) and the big Mokis have somewhat of a reputation for being noisy. Engine going into a big Sukhoi.
