1200cc-1600cc Standard Main Bearing Set

Item #: 1581 VW #: 111-198-461

Main Bearing Set: 1200-1600cc 61-79 - Standard Size

VW main bearing set. The main bearings hold the crankshaft in place within the engine block, and wear out over time. A lot of cold starts and driving farther between oil changes causes even more wear. Change these if you are removing the rods and pistons; its cheap insurance against a major rebuild later.

Do-it-Yourself Tip


These VW main bearing sets do not include the thrust washers. For these engines you will need a set of the thrust washers shown below. And use a high quality assembly lube to be sure your engine is well protected during its first startup.
