What has happened is that the main bearings have been line
bored and they also did the #4. This bearing is not usually
done but yours has been. I will look at my stash of bearings
to see if I have one and there might be people out there
that might also have one. I usually don't do this bearing
since most kits came with standard and this one was not
damaged. First are all your other bearings line bored?

When replacing the #4 bearing in a rebuild I am doing, the new bearing fell right through the bearing bore in the third piece. The bearing I removed (photos attached) is not a standard Porsche bearing and the OD measures 1.988 which is .017 larger than the replacement bearing (1.971). The bearing bore in the third piece measured 1.985 which is .020 over nominal from other unaltered third pieces. So I am perplexed: what type of bearing did I remove from the case and why would the bore in the third piece have been bored +.020. The case has not been lined bored and even so I do not believe that the 3rd piece is ever line bored. The engine is a normal #606421 and otherwise appears unaltered. Any information regarding the type of bearing I removed or suggestions would be appreciated.
