    So following on from previous threads.. I need a set of crank main bearings and thrust washers.

    ive been in touch with TpS and been given the following

    Crank bearings. £7.92 06a198491


    Thrust washers £ 4.29 026105635a

    Thrust washers is no issue but the crank bearings , they only have 1 part number. And say I need 5 sets.. I'm sure that 1 set is different no.3?!? Am I wrong...

    5 sets is right as they are sold in pairs IIRC... on OE bearings there is one plain bearing and one grooved bearing... on aftermarket bearings they supply one pair as grooved for bearing cap 4..
