I buy most of my Briggs parts from psep.biz. They have a great parts lookup feature. Order all your parts at once and pay only $7.95 shipping.

A stock Vanguard does not have any connecting rod bearings, top or bottom. In fact, there is only one bearing in the entire engine. It is located on the PTO side of the crankshaft. Some Vanguards have two on the PTO side for extra support.
You can get connecting rods with bearings for a Vanguard, but be prepared to delay your retirement if you decide to buy them. They are expensive.

No bearing on the fan side...what's the crank riding on?

They call it a bearing, but it is just a bushing/sleeve.

I would not call $130 each a king's ransom.

When you put $130 x 2 into a $100 motor, you think twice before you do it.
Not to mention all the money it takes to get to a point where you need billet rods.

When you spend $220 for a performance cam, $85 for a rev kit, $260 for bullet proof rods with bearings is too much?

$260 is kind of pricey unless you were building a flat out racing motor. IMO . This is why I decided to not buy the $220 cam. I just don't need it.

What rods are in your supercharged engine?
