    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers sintered metal powder, oil-impregnated, bearings of four iron-base compositional grades:

    Grades 1 and 2—iron-carbon

    Grades 3 and 4—iron-copper

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalents of inch-pound units may be approximate.
