Default Spec 13 D restoration

This winters project, my first in several years is going to be a Spec 13 D reverse rotation, I removed it from my shed yesterday to put in the garage and to make space for my Lister Hamworthy compressor set.
Initial checks show a lack of compression, a stuck valve perhaps, but the biggest issue is the rumbling crankshaft bearings, easily heard turning the engine over by hand.
What I need is the bearings part no's so that I can purchase them before I start stripping the engine or the bearing sizes, does anybody have this information please.
The engine when finished will be put onto an original Lister D trolley that is waiting in the wings.
Thanks for the help.

The flywheel end bearing is part number D7 and is an RLS12 or LJ 1 1/2"
The crank end bearing is part number D8 and is an RLS14 or LJ 1 3/4"

Charles,

Thank you very much, this is the first time I've had to change the bearings, just turning the flywheel they feel like threpenny pieces.

Is that a bit like a 50p, once allowance for inflation is made

Neil.

Martin.

I had a similar challenge when working the little Petter Appletop; in that case a ball bearing and a roller bearing. Largish imperial bearings can be a bit costly, but Bearing Boys usually have something at a fair price - however, I also found it's worth spending some time on eBay. Rather than reasonably cheap "no-name" bearings of indeterminate quality, I managed to find new old-stock top quality bearings, even cheaper.
