White Metaling


Up Why White Metal? Assembly Advice Machining


Full White Metaling Service in Hoyt's 11R & 11Z3 - The Supreme white metals

Casting, Machining and Line boring etc

We can re-metal almost anything from tiny Henderson motorcycle big ends to large Stationary engines. We can also re-claim hard to get bearings like Matra V12 (see below) & Daimler DB18 mains 


Above:  Obsolete Matra V12 main bearings (2+ sets ) recast, ready for customer to refit and line bore


Casting Service

Many overseas and trade customers use our recasting service - this saves having to ship the crank cases / block & crank. We can return your bearings, rough cast within 10 days for approx 40* per bearing (* split pair, up to 2.5 inch. diameter).  

See examples below:


 Derby Bentley Mains                           Riley 12/4 Rear Mains
