Mazda Miata Rod Bearing Sets!
Rod bearings fit inbetween the connecting rods and crankshaft, providing an area for the thin oil film as well as a protective barrier between the connecting rod and the crankshaft.
If oil pressure drops enough, the thin film of oil which separates the bearings from both the crankshaft and the connecting rod is not sufficient to provide the "cushion" needed and damage to the bearings will occur. The bearings can also be spun, and contaminents in the oil can cause damage to them as well.
The replacement of rod bearings should be performed by an experienced mechanic.
