Great work. I have had babbitt work down at other places but none compare to the quality of this. I can see my face in it. Super work.
Rebbitted a set of model Ford engine rods. Excellent workmanship. Supper fast turn around.
Howdy, Our shop has been using Russ and his team for over 20 years. There have been times when they have gotten us out of a bind but even when time was on our side the service has always been timely.
The quality of their work is excellent and something we are proud to install in our engine overhauls for cars travelling nationwide.

Not many shops do babbit bearings. Pauls did a great job on my 1930 LaSalle, replacing all the babbit bearings. They made it easy handling shipping both ways and the bearings went in with minimal adjustment. Great shop to do business with.
Paul's does a incredible job babbitting rods and mains for the Packards we rebuild in our shop in MA. Thank you for the fine work.
Great place to do business with. Highly recommended.
Russ was great to do business with.awsome job on babbit bearings.
They lined bored the block, fit the crank, and reconditioned the rods from a 1929 Ford Model A for us. They also polished the crank for the Model A. Everything was done correctly and we were very happy with how everything was handled. They were very helpful, and their turnaround time was rather quick for this engine. We would definitely recommend them, especially for antique and classic car engines. We will be using them again next time this type of engine work comes up.
Great people to work with and good turn around times.
Russ and crew rebabbitt rod bearing and main bearing inserts for a 22-45 Eagle tractor for me. Russ was very thorough on every step. Called me twice to make sure he had the right diameter of the crankshaft journals. Very happy with completed babbitting on all rod & main inserts Russ was very easy to talk with would recommend Paul's Rod and Bearing to everybody.
Russ is great to work with. He has done an excellent job babbitt on several engines for us over the years.
We have done business with Paul's Rods for years and have always done us a great job in a timely manner. Great people to deal with also.
We have used Paul's Rod and bearing for over 40 years, always a pleasure to work with them.
Paul’s Rod was great to work with on getting our GM 216ci rods converted to insert bearing. Friendly to talk to on the phone and got them done in a timely manner! Definitely would recommend them to anyone that needs that type of work done!
I send my babbitt work to Paul's, their work is excellent. The material is of great quality and it STAYS IN PLACE after the job is done. Russ was also very accommodating on my last job.

Restoring a 1927 Studebaker, needed the bearings babbitted; Pauls Rod & Bearing did a fantastic job for us. And, located a much needed camshaft too. Customer service A+, very knowledgeable; without folks like Russ, vintage restorations are impossible!
For 15 years Russ has provided industrial bearing repairs for power generation equipment owned and operated by Independence Power & Light. From coal mills to combustion turbines, Paul’s Rod and Bearing has exceeded OEM reliability, availability, at an affordable cost to the citizens.
I have used PR&B several times over the past 10 or 15 years and have found their product and service to be very, very good.

I took rod's out of 1923 20-40 Rumely Oil Pull to Russ to get re-babbitted. They were very large rods. Russ did an Excellent job on them! If I need babbitt work done, this is the place I will go.
Very professional and attentive to detail. New babbitt bearings for my 1928 Chrysler Model 72 were well done timely produced and on budget.

I called Russ and explained my need and timeline, he came thru just as he said. Most of all the product (Babbitt work) was as nicely finished as I have ever seen. I have referred to several friends.
I had rods rebuilt for antique 2 cyl JD tractor. Great communication and turn around time. Will use again if another project arrives.
Over the last 18 years I have used over 200 sets of Model A Fords rods with great satisfaction. Russ is excellent to work with. If you need Babbitt work done, this is the place to go.
Posting for an Amish neighbor. They do great work.

Babbitt quality at fit is excellent every time. I highly recommend their services.
I needed a rod bearing that Russ resurfaced to the measurements I sent him for a 1940 Studebaker . He went above what I excepted due to the fact it was just one piece which meant a lot of jig and machine work that takes more time than most people do not realize. When I installed it the clearance was perfect. Thanks Russ for going the extra mile for me.
I have had Paul's do babitt work on connecting rods twice. He did a great job in a timely manor and reasonable cost. This was on a motor that neither I nor he had specifications, but he had enough experience to do the job correctly. It was on a 1923 Midwest Engine that is in a Hale fire truck.
I sent rods out of my model T engine to be exchanged for rebuild rods. They were out of rebuild rods so Russ sold me new one for the same price. Thanks I’ll use you again.
Thank You to all at Pauls Rod and Bearing. 1931 DeVaux is running like new. Babbitt bearing and rod work was impressive
I had a Model A Ford engine babbitt replaced and was very impressed with the professionalism at Paul’s. The job was completed in a timely manner and it was a perfect job. Very interesting experience.
Quick turn around and excellent Babbitt quality. 5 stars plus.

I had an engine re-babbitted from a 1929 Ford AA truck. The services provided were in a timely manner and looked good when returned. Any questions and they would answer them. I would recommend to anybody.
I had 4 rods rebuilt with Babbitt for a antic car. The job they did was amazing. I highly recommend their service.
Pauls Rod and Bearing has poured rod bearings and main caps for my dad and myself with great results. Price and quality are superior and turn around time was good. We recommend highly.
Paul's did specialty babbitting on a 1909 Jackson engine. Crankshaft had been brazed and machined. His work was flawless!
We have had several engines poured here. everything is always as it should be and easy to deal with.
They made some babbitt bearings for us that another company could not do. They were excellently done!
Have used Paul's service numerous times and have been very pleased with results. Setup time is costly, so having no flaws in the babbitt work is critical. We have never had a problem with their work.
Superb personal extremely knowledgeable service. High precision work. Great references for other services. Few companies deliver such of a rarity! highly recommended.
Great service. Helped us with 1918 Nash engine bearings. Would use them again!
They did a great job applying babbitt for a custom repair on a large rod end for a custom remanufatured hay bailer part. Great communication and everything came back as scheduled with plenty of material for us to finish machining. I do mostly industrial work and when I have another application they will definitely be my go to for the work.
We needed the bearings re-babbitted on a 1928 Chevy Roadster 4 cylinder. This is very difficult to do and very few people do it, because its 'old school' work. We sent the bearings to Paul's and Russ took care of them for us in a very short window of time. We will definitely use this business again.
Have worked with them for years! Very professional and knowledgeable.
Paul’s Rod and bearing is absolutely hands down the best. They are the one vendor I can count on to get the job done both correctly and quickly. Russ has done many sets of connnecting rods and main bearings for me. My local engine shop told me their Babbitt work is the best he’s ever seen. I am always getting compliments on how beautifully my own ‘32 olds runs. I highly recommend Paul’s to anyone needing engine work on their antique cars. They have always provided me with excellent service and workmanship on my rebuild parts for my restorations. If you want the best, trust Paul’s to deliver it!

I met Russ the owner and recieved a tour of their facility. I was very impressed with the organization and it felt like a tour of a machine shop back in the 30's. They re-babbited a full set of main brg shells and connecting rods for my 1930 Pontiac 6-30-8 engine. As a certified red seal mechanic myself I feel I am able to distinguish quality work over poor workmanship. These guys do Quality work. I strongly recommend them.
Russ was extremely helpful with my John Deere crankshaft and bearings. He performed the work quickly at a reasonable price. The shipping was horrible but he assisted me with that also. He is a great guy.
It was my first time completely rebuilding the engine in a 1940 john deere model A, I sent my rods and mains out to get rebabbited by pauls rod and bearing and I couldn't be happier. They really helped me out. I gave them my machined rods and mains numbers and they quickly got them poured and sent back to me. They looked spectacular. I had trouble shimming my mains and they helped me through it. With their help I was able to get my tractors engine to better than new condition and ready for the next 80 years.
Had him make a Babbitt rod repair and did a terrific job for me. and was done very quickly.

Needed. Babbitt repaired on rods and mains on my Chevy, and Russ knew exactly what I needed and delivered.
I have used Pauls Rod and Bearing for quite some time on many engines model t and model a and they are very high quality and fair priced.

I had main bearings repaired for an old tractor engine. The workmanship was superb turnaround time, very short and very reasonable price. Great service!
I needed some old engine connecting rods from a 1944 John Deere B re-babbitted. Found this company on the internet and set up the work. Sent them my rods and they fixed them up. They worked great and the turnaround time was good. Not very many places do this type work, but these folks are top notch!
Great job and great service! Quick and spot on specs for my job. Keeps my old Model T running, and we do lots of touring with it. Thanks Russ!
Expert workmanship and great customer support we have used them several times always get great service.
