One of the bearings has an offset. I think it is only on one half shell as there is typically a color marker to identify it. I say that because you might have a situation with a single shell where you could have a too tight situation (meaning pairing together two offset shells).

So, you might check your existing bearings to see if there is a color marker on the end of one. I was able to mic the edge/corner and identify the different shell in the absence of a color marker. Knowing this would rule out the need for that one specific shell. Assuming you have the offset shell I'd think you could run any (non-offset) brand as a two half "set" for that particular journal.

If I was in your situation, personally I wouldn't sweat the TRW specific requirement. Most any reputable maker new bearing shell that fits with proper clearance would be ok.
Your engine, your rules, sorta depends on how long you'd be willing to wait for the TRW piece.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to give Clark's a call to see if they can provide if you haven't already.

Yeah, Clarks doesn't sell partial sets, but they have helped me when I got a damaged bearing from them. It seems they have some sets that got broken up to help with customer problems over the years.

I would confirm which position bearing you needed, then call Clark's and see if they have a open set that they will sell you the pair of shells you need for 1/4 the price of a main set. What will it cost to ask?
