Bearing Crush (bearing nip)


A means of ensuring that a plain bearing is a secure interference-fit in its housing. The term is applied particularly to big-end and main bearings. The shells in both types stand slightly proud of their housings under light connecting pressure, but when the cap is fully tightened the proud portion is nipped back into the caps to become a tight fit.
