Those are copper-Lead HD bearings as described in my book, The  Classic
Corvair. No need to either replace them if not worn or can used any 
type bearings.

I have a  question.  Does anyone know of a bearing manufacturer that makes
copper  clad bearings?  I tore apart today a '61 98 hp engine.  I first
noticed the rod bearings.  When I took the first cap off I noticed the 
color.  At first I thought I was looking at a junk bearing worn  all the way
to the copper layer.  Imagine my surprise when I saw all the  rest of the
rods and all the mains looked identical.  Inquiring minds  want to know.
Thanks for you help.
